In his own words: "Folding and Docking Proteins Using Amino Acid Co-evolution-based Machine Learning Methods Building a module for machine learning and heuristic filtering methods for contact predictions of protein-protein clusters. Work is contributing to a larger body of analysis on co-evolution based determination of 3-D complex structures. Research is closely related to prior work that has won my professor's colleagues several recent Nobel prizes.  TAMS Summer Research Scholarship - Design of a Novel Flow Cell for Electrodeposition of Corrosion-Resistant Dispersion Coatings Electrochemically deposited coatings have shown promise in increasing corrosion resistance in low oxygen conditions. Incorporation of clay platelets has been shown to improve certain beneficial properties in films. By flowing the electrolyte over the substrate, alignment of plates and reduction of grain size can be induced in the deposited films."
