Terra Sztain is an NSF Graduate Research Fellow at the University of California, San Diego. She is a PhD candidate in the areas of Biochemistry and Biophysics, under the advisement of Prof. Michael Burkart and Prof. J. Andrew McCammon. Her research focuses on the integration of experimental and computational techniques to understand proteins structure and dynamics to manipulate their functions. She primarily iterates between NMR spectroscopy and conventional and enhanced sampling molecular dynamics simulations to make predictions and validations. Terra received her B.S. in Biochemistry from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2016, graduating cum laude.
