My research is in developing modern computational binding and hydration free energy estimation software and reducing the barrier to entry for software deployment through the computational chemistry field. I incorporate the new techniques from research while also making a user-friendly interface for both beginners and experts alike. My work also makes simulations easy to change experimental parameters and highly reproducible. I also work on additional tools to assist other developers in creating and deploying their own software, easily accessing programs from other groups in the computational chemistry field, and adhering to good software development standards.
