About Chris

Currently I am a graduate student in Dr. Linda Columbus's lab co-advised by Dr. Cameron Mura and Dr. Michael Shirts. My research interest focuses on the applications of computers into modeling chemical phenomena and reactions. Aside from the computational work, my formal training in biochemistry and extensive laboratory experience allows me to validate computational predictions with actual laboratory experiments. I am a recent graduate (May 2011) from the University of Virginia with a double major, B.Sc. chemistry with a Specialization in Biology, and B.A. Interdisciplinary Computer Science.


Chris receives 2011 NBCR Summer Institute Scholarship

In August 2011, I will attend the sixth National Biomedical Computation Resource (NBCR) Summer Institute (SI) in San Diego, CA on the campuses of University of California, San Diego (UCSD) and The Scrippts Research institute (TSRI). The goal is to provide significant training opportunities for the biomedical research community members in computational multiscale biomedical research. Training includes hands-on sessions for key NBCR tools freely available to the academic community. I received a competitive scholarship to attend the institute and presented a poster on his project at the poster session.
