Can we use computers to help accelerate the search for new materials? What if we could benefit from the enormous speed and efficiency of machine learning models to make this process faster?
I am a scientist applying state-of-the-art machine learning techniques to drug discovery tasks at AstraZeneca. Before this, I was graduate student in the chemical and computational engineering Ph.D. program at MIT, advised by professors Heather Kulik and Youssef Marzouk. My research lies at the intersection of atomistic simulation, machine learning and optimization.

Machine learning in chemistry
Together with Aditya Nandy and Nick Yang, I have put together a workshop covering the basic ideas of machine learning, intended for graduate students in chemical sciences. To date, I have presented this workshop at MIT, Ben Gurion University and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
