Hi, I'm Natalie!
I like to build community, run marathons, and solve math problems.
I'm a creative and goal-oriented problem solver driven by my desire to make the world a better place. I'm especially interested in the link between healthcare and technology.
Currently, I’m based in Boulder, CO. I study tendon mechanics and am working to develop potential therapies for tendinopathy in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Colorado. I take an interdisciplinary approach to all of my research projects, drawing from my background as both a lab scientist and a data scientist.
Outside of my primary role, I’m an artist, an athlete, and am always working on a number of other projects which you can learn more about on this website.
Our team worked to improve the bioavailability and stability of early stage oncology drugs. We predicted how a drug will perform in the human body and designed formulations to enhance the drug product.
I split my time 50/50 working in the lab investigating physicochemical properties of novel drugs and working as a data scientist on a project called the Molecular Trend Initiative.
