Hannah graduated from Johannes-Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany, with a pharmacy degree in 2018. During her time in pharmacy school she worked with Prof. González at the University Jaume in Castelló de la Plana, Spain, synthesizing a new cysteine protease inhibitor against Trypanosoma. She also did an internship for six months at Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, where she applied relative binding free energy calculations in ongoing drug discovery projects. Motivated by this experience, Hannah decided to come to UC Irvine, where she joined the Mobley lab in Fall 2018. Her research focuses on the calculation of binding free energies using a non-equilibrium alchemical approach. Hannah’s main interest is to develop and improve computational methods that help discover new drugs.
