Subject Area:

  • Biophysics

Research Areas: Computational Biophysics

My research focus on the study of mechanoactive proteins using computational biophysics/chemistry tools.

Additionally, I am interested in software development for computational structural biology, particularly in the use of hybrid QM/MM methods, and machine learning tools for analysis of molecular simulations.
