I am queer and I am a research technician in molecular biology.//

I’m a structural biologist working on mitochondrial membrane proteins. I like to study molecular machines and the conformational changes they undergo to do their jobs. I also like to think about how we can engineer our own tiny machines, particularly to address problems in producing sources of renewable energy. I hope to soon be a PhD candidate in biology/biophysics so I can think about these problems a lot more.
