Research in a nutshell:Computational biological & soft matter. My research geared towards the interface between materials science, biology & biomedical sciences. I am interested in problems such as lipid diffusion, sterols, bacterial toxins, membrane proteins, antibiotics, translocation of DNA, peptides and sugars. I am also working on magentic materials, pattern formation and non-equilibrium dynamics. Typically, I employ theory and large scale computer simulations.•Proteins: Intrinsically disordered proteins•Multiscale methods and coarse-graining•Cell division and cellular motility•Active matter & non-equilibrium phenomena
Collaborate?Many of the projects are done in collaboration with both experimental and theory groups or/and industry. If you are interested in a collaboration, please don't hesitate to contact me.
