Researcher at Naval Research Laboratory

• Conducted bioinformatics analysis of large gene/protein expression (RNA-seq and proteomics) datasets. • Performed data analysis on replica exchange molecular dynamics and other biomolecular simulations. • Used deep learning (LSTMs and CNNs) to predict active antimicrobial peptides and strong bacterial promoters from sequence alone, using both experimental data and public databases. • Designed and engineered gene circuits to function in novel microbial chassis for potential use in modifying the gut community
