I am currently a PhD student. I am interested in studying the mechanical properties of the nuclear envelope (NE) and the chromatin. I use molecular dynamics simulations to analyse the NE fluctuations and how they affect  the configuration of chromatins encapsulated within. I perform the simulations using a software package developed by  our group, the Virtual Cell Model.
