Hunter is a PhD student in Computational Biology at University of California, Berkeley advised by Jennifer Listgarten and a member of the Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research Lab (BAIR). Prior to coming to Berkeley, Hunter worked at D. E. Shaw Research where he conducted research on machine learning-based approaches for designing small-molecules. He obtained his B.S. in Mathematics from Duke University, where he worked with Bruce Donald on improved algorithms for computational structure-based protein design. Hunter is interested in developing improved computational tools for data-driven design of proteins and small-molecules.
