Biophysical / Computational Chemistry
Our reserach focuses on computer simulations of biomolecular systems. We are particularly interested in coupled binding - folding processes of DNA-binding proteins and in the conformational dynamics of kinases and bacteriological toxins. We also develop new computational methods to push simulations to longer time scales and larger system sizes.
