Throughout my career, it was the scientific curiosity that led me into areas of organic chemistry, combinatorial chemistry, medicinal chemistry, drug design, and computational chemistry.

Over the years, I became intrigued by molecular structures and physicochemical properties of molecules. After mastering basics of computational chemistry, I kept coming back to practical approaches to molecular models and molecular visualization. At one time, when immersed in a peculiar structural chemistry puzzle, I run across the concept of Natural Bond Orbitals (NBO). I found it extremely useful and I am learning and using it since. I enjoy writing simple applications and scripts to make processing and understanding results of NBO explorations easier.

On the hobby side, I enjoy digital photography, color science, web design, and coding.

Arsenal of my scripting and programming tools includes html, css, jQuery, PHP, Java, Python, and Matlab.
