Dr. Jacobson has a Ph.D. in theoretical and computational condensed matter physics from the University of Southern California in 2012. She has extensive experience with computational methods, such as kinetic Monte Carlo, Markov theory, simulated annealing, and Metropolis algorithms applied to problems in biophysics and condensed matter physics. Her current research interests are in computational biophysics, ranging from modeling molecular motors to protein aggregation, non-equilibrium stochastic processes, and phase transitions in soft condensed matter systems.
