Research Summary

Uncovering the molecular determinants of physical-chemical transformations is an essential step towards the development of rational design strategies for industrial chemical processes. 
With my research I aim at answering questions regarding how molecular properties affect technologically relevant processes in the fields of chemical and biochemical engineering. 
In order to tackle problems in this area I apply molecular dynamics and state-of-the-art enhanced sampling methods to compute thermodynamics and kinetics at the molecular level. 

My current interests include crystallization, nucleation, protein-ligand binding, protein chromatography, molecular dynamics simulations, and enhanced sampling techniques.
