As of March 2017, I am working as a postdoctoral researcher with Markus Meuwly, University of Basel, Switzerland. Contact me here: firstname.lastname@example.org
Early Career Fellow in Physics (Sept. 2016-Feb. 2017), funded by INTEGRATE AMR. Prior to this I held an IAS Early Career Fellowship.
My INTEGRATE AMR fellowship focused on the computational modelling of proteins.
I developed collaborations with several experimental groups in structural biology (School of Life Sciences), including Chris Dowson, Elizabeth Fullam, Richard Napier, Robert Freedman, Adrian Lloyd and David Roper.
Secondment to the group of Ivan Coluzza (University of Vienna, Austria) in Jan. 2017.
Other AMR project collaborators: Rudo Roemer (Physics) and Mark Rodger (Chemistry).
IAS Early Career Fellowship: path-integral based simulations to study quantum mechanical effects associated with ions in solution, working in collaboration with Scott Habershon (Chemistry).
