I am a tenure-track assistant professor in Computer Science at California State University, Los Angeles, interested in teaching and research in computational sciences with applications in drug discovery. I develop machine learning, scalable optimization algorithms, and high performance computing to understand the structure and function of biomolecular systems. I was a biomedical research intern at Stanford Center for Genomics and Personalized Medicine (SCGPM) in the summer of 2018 and a graduate research assistant at Virginia Tech Advanced Research Computing (ARC) in 2018-2019. Currently, I am a faculty member of the Biomedical Engineering (BME) Minor Program at Cal State LA, a co-director of the NSF PREC program at Cal State LA, and an official developer of AMBER, an open-source software package for molecular dynamics simulation.
