Personal Interests

I am the namesake of Dr. Gregory John Cresson, M.D., who passed away from Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) during his residency. I aspire to become a Pathologist, like my uncle, and aim to extend the lifespan of GBM.

Research Interests

My research is in Monte Carlo molecular simulation. My experience is in Replica Exchange sampling, and I am interested in developing new algorithms for analyzing protein dynamics, particularly protein interaction.
