Hello! I am a Ph.D. student in the Systems Biological Engineering Laboratory under the direction of Dr. Stephen Fong at Virginia Commonwealth University. My primary research interest is in the use of large scale in silico models to better understand and engineer microbial metabolism. Please feel free to email me.

I'll think of something to put here.

Where is the Life we have lost in living?
Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?
--T. S. Eliot, Choruses from The Rock
