Is a Computational Structural Biologist in the Bioinformatics and Computational Biosciences Branch within the Office of Cyber Infrastructure and Computational Biology at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. His graduate and postdoctoral work at the University of California, Irvine and University of California, Berkeley, respectively, applied the techniques of NMR spectroscopy to the three-dimensional structural determination of biological molecules. His current interest is in using computational methods, including virtual and augmented reality, to study biomolecular structures and functions. He is the author of several scientific research articles and was a co-discoverer of left-handed double helical RNA.
