I am a postdoc in Ivo L. Hofacker's Theoretical Biochemistry Group (tbi) at the University of Vienna. My research activities include a software project to simulate cotranscriptional folding of large RNA molecules, the development of a foundational, coarse-grained, biophysical model for kinetic folding of multistranded nucleic acid systems, and a sequence design software for multistranded nucleic acid systems that integrates thermodynamic optimization with optimization of selected kinetic parameters. Before my present appointment, I studied Molecular Biology at the University of Vienna with focus on computational RNA design (using both thermodynamic and kinetic models of RNA folding), and I worked as a postdoc in Erik Winfree's DNA and Natural Algorithms Group, Caltech to develop a compiler framework that unifies the design of complex nucleic acid "strand displacement" systems and formal verification.
