I played with molecules as if they were lego pieces. I assembled atoms together and created supercomputer simulations of proteins, DNAs, or drugs still to exist. That was then – when I worked as a research scientist in academia.
I have a PhD in molecular biophysics, master’s in molecular and celular biology, and bachelor’s in computer science. After a period of postdoctoral work, I felt I had to be more connected with science outreach and education.
So here I am. I write about science careers for Owen Software. I’m also part of the science education blog at PLOS. Here’s my LinkedIn page and at profile piece about me done by Florida State University.
