Jessica joined the Mobley group in 2018. She graduated University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2017 with a B.S. in Applied Mathematics and Chemistry. She worked with Prof. Christine Isborn from UC Merced on her undergraduate honors thesis on calculating the hyperpolarizaibility of organic electrooptic chromophores and modeling their excited state coupling.
Jessica currently works on improving accuracy of force fields in the Open Force Field Initiative. Specifically her project focuses on developing using data driven methods to improve energetics and geometries of trivalent nitrogens, a very prevalent chemical feature in small drug molecules.
Jessica is also the president of the Women in Chemistry Group Iota Sigma Pi Calcium Chapter at UCI and the outreach coordinator for AWIS.
