Research Interest

My interest lies in the development and application of technologies to accelerate the growth of the peptide therapeutics field. I currently lead a diverse team of scientists working to utilize Nimble Therapeutics’ proprietary maskless array synthesis technology for the rapid, efficient discovery and optimization of peptide therapeutics.

Personal Statement

Two things have really impressed me at APS meetings: (1) the diverse, collaborative environment and (2) the high quality of investigator’s work. I believe that organizations like APS play a critical role in ensuring all voices are represented in the peptide field. It is this collaborative, scientifically-motivated environment that I believe will drive the emergence of new peptide therapeutics. I look forward to contributing to this mission.
