I have recently shifted careers to become a high school educator. I am having fun in the trenches of urban education. My first (academic) love is enzyme catalysis, and my second is protein structure. I am learning to love motivating young people. Foldit exercises another part of my brain that teaching does not.
Retired technology professional finally escaped from tech giants sanity intact. Except can't seem to get shut of foldit. But hopefully contributing to advancing the art of protein folding with occasional pressure on the better folders.
My name is Essie and I like Computers.

I am a theatre historian who grew up in South Dakota, finished a bachelors degree at the U of Nebraska-Lincoln, and a PhD at the U of Washington-Seattle. Folding relaxes me and lets me use my spatial thinking.
Diploma in Mathematics and Computer Sciences in 2001

Retired uni techie.
Started crunching Boinc a few years ago and was introduced to folding by a Boinc team-mate, so have added that to my list of worthy causes.
I fold a bit.
I like to score really high, really quickly. Then I check my email and maybe do some dishes.
or my PC (capable of running ~5 clients) :)
Number of clients is limited by CPU, not Temperature due to efficient water cooling...
