Hi, and welcome to my webpage. I’m a first year PhD student in Language Technologies Institute, and I’m working with my advisor, Prof. Christopher James Langmead, on Graphical Models applied to protein structure modeling. We’re currently working on Estimation and Inference for continuous multivariate models of backbone torsion angles, including multivariate Gaussian model and von-Mises model.
Prior to my PhD, I was a Master student here in LTI, working on Statistical Machine Translation with Stephan Vogel.
