Hi! I am Thras, a Ph.D. candidate in the Molecular Machines group at MIT Media Lab and the MIT Center for Bits and Atoms.
My research at the Media Lab revolves around the application of Deep Learning and AI in protein, evolution, folding, and design. In the past few years, I have worked on rapid-prototyping hardware for biology in FabLabs, ultra-fast laser micromachining, Self-Calibrating protocols for wearable EEG sensors, bioinformatics to crack the olfactory code and quantum cryptography.
