Hey guys! Thanks for checking out a little piece of my world. In short, I'm a PhD candidate in biophysics working to develop new antibiotics. I work in a lab that uses computer simulations and laboratory experiments to help understand the biological phenomenon involving a certain type of protein. I try to use these tools to develop a drug that will selectively target bad bacteria, while sparing the bacteria that's actually good for you.
As you may have heard: a PhD is jokingly defined by 'knowing more and more about less and less until you know everything about nothing.' I'm in love with what I do - but I needed a creative outlet that zoomed out the micron-sized scope that I operate in daily to explore other aspects of science & my favorite past times: traveling, exploring, & healthy living.
Going forward, I'm excited for the launch of my weekly newsletter The Microscoop (coming Fall 2018) - which will serve as a source of real, unfiltered, and new science in easy to understand and (hopefully) relatable language. Can't wait!
Enjoy reading & I look forward to sharing with you !
