Jasmine Nirody is a graduate student in Biophysics at the University of California, Berkeley. During her PhD, she has focused primarily on developing theoretical models of rotary molecular motors, but has recently stumbled into some experimental projects as well (and would love to talk to you about them!). She is really glad that the Biophysical Society organized a thematic meeting on motors this year, and is especially excited about the idea that molecular motors can be used to solve unexpected problems (e.g., in imaging and computing). She had originally planned to sneak away to catch a few of the Euro2016 matches and felt a slight pang of disappointment looking through the conference program because all the sessions were too interesting to skip. She is also looking forward to seeing a cloud or two in the Pacific Northwest after spending the past four years in California.
