I am currently a postdoctoral fellow in the Prof. Mohammad Reza Ejtehadi’s group at SUT. Generally my research is centered around two inter-related questions: (i) how do proteins function by changing their conformation and undergoing concerted motions? and (ii) how can we simulate these functionally important conformational changes at an atomic level? In our group, I attempt to understand functionality of Histon and DNA and their behavior in Cromatin’s structure. I employ Molecular Dynamics Simulation and Quantum Mechanics Computations.
I am interested in:
Molecular Dynamics Simulation
Quantum Mechanics/Molecular Mechanics
Density Functional Theory
DNA transcription
Conformational Transitions in Membrane Transport Proteins
Methodological Developments for Biomolecular Simulations
Drug Delivery
GPU Coding
