I am a fourth-year DPhil student in the Oxford Protein Informatics Group. I work developing algorithms for protein structure prediction, using a variety of multidisciplinary techniques — from quantum computing, to machine learning, to insights from molecular biology. Outside of the research world, I am passionate about technology, entrepreneurship and cooking.
