I re-rendered at 1080p resolution an old animation that I created back in 2007 for a lecture series given by Jay Ingram.  The HD version of the animation, showing an artist's conception of a folding protein, is available on YouTube.  Note that this is for educational purposes only; unauthorized commercial use is prohibited.

I'm researcher with a Ph.D. in biochemistry; my work mainly revolves around understanding mechanisms of protein folding and misfolding, though I'm moving into the protein design field. Here's a list of my publications on PubMed. In my free time, I dabble in digital art and in photography.

Note: I've been getting quite a lot of favourites on my artwork lately. I'm very grateful, and I apologize in advance if I can't say thank you for each one individually.

Hello! Love your work.  Curious if you've thought about or have produced any polymeric entanglement imagery?  We're in search of some and would be interested to connect if so.  Thanks and enjoy the northwest!

No, I'm afraid I haven't thought much about entanglement (or, at least, that definition of "entanglement" -- my first thought was quantum entanglement)!  Peptides are often too short, and we're usually designing them to fold, so that they won't end up entangled.  Entanglement of polymer chains is definitely an interesting phenomenon, but not one that I've illustrated before.

Thank you for the fave~ ^_^
Happy holidays, and happy new year :)

(Also, it's cool to see that you're a researcher with a Ph.D; I'm in the process of applying for a PhD-track grad school program myself :) )

No problem.  Happy new year to you, too!
