I re-rendered at 1080p resolution an old animation that I created back in 2007 for a lecture series given by Jay Ingram.  The HD version of the animation, showing an artist's conception of a folding protein, is available on YouTube.  Note that this is for educational purposes only; unauthorized commercial use is prohibited.

I'm a computational biochemist at the Flatiron Institute in New York City, who works on protein and peptide design and structure prediction, with applications in medicine. Here's a list of my publications on PubMed. In my free time, I dabble in digital art and in photography.

Note: I've been getting quite a lot of favourites on my artwork lately. I'm very grateful, and I apologize in advance if I can't say thank you for each one individually.

Hello! I Love your work so much!  I joined DA when I was in junior high school because i love painting. Then i major in chemistry i have no time to paint. Last week i was asked by my teacher to draw illustration for my polymer paper. Then i saw your painting! it was awesome! To see two of my fav.(art and chem.) jioned together!

Hello! Love your work.  Curious if you've thought about or have produced any polymeric entanglement imagery?  We're in search of some and would be interested to connect if so.  Thanks and enjoy the northwest!

No, I'm afraid I haven't thought much about entanglement (or, at least, that definition of "entanglement" -- my first thought was quantum entanglement)!  Peptides are often too short, and we're usually designing them to fold, so that they won't end up entangled.  Entanglement of polymer chains is definitely an interesting phenomenon, but not one that I've illustrated before.

Thank you for the fave~ ^_^
Happy holidays, and happy new year :)

(Also, it's cool to see that you're a researcher with a Ph.D; I'm in the process of applying for a PhD-track grad school program myself :) )
