Kristi Xing, 2023 summer grant recipient

Meet Kristi Xing

Kristi studies AI-models with the Ellington lab to make predictions about protein structures, interactions, and functions. Kristi works with SMILES (Simplified Molecular Input Line Entry Systems), software-compatible representations of 3-D molecular structures. Kristi is a recipient of the Maura Shannon Barrett Internships grant. Here, she introduces her research.

Kristi creates and tests AI models in Texas

Kristi updates us on her summer research experience.

Kristi's summer takeaways

Kristi had to go back to the drawing board (literally) on her research project, but along the way, she kindled her joy of coding beyond the classroom.
