    -Molecular Dynamics
    -Statistical Physics
    -Computational Modeling

Research Interest Summary

  • I am using of Molecular Dynamics and other computational tools to understand mechanisms involved in the function of Complex I (NADH:ubiquinone oxidoreductase).
    My current projects are:
    1) Investigating how Quinone binds to Complex I
    2) Characterizing water channels in conformations
    3) Use of principal component analysis to extend the time frame of simulation.
