I was Austin's teacher this spring as part of a systems biology course that he was taking at University of Chicago. Austin was delightful to have as a student - sweet, inquisitive, intelligent, and thoughtful. He confessed to being a player of a large online game called Foldit, which works towards understanding one of the hardest unsolved problems in molecular biology - how protein polymers fold into three-dimensional shapes. I assume then that Austin is one of the 57,000 co-authors in a 2010 article in Nature that reported on the game. Austin was a memorable person, and I am very sorry for his loss.
