I am currently enrolled as an iPhD student as part of the CDT in Next Generation Computational Modelling. My project will focus on the computational modelling of biological systems. In particular modeling systems such as biological membranes/lipid bilayers at long length and distance scales by using a multi-scale approach, seeking to combine the current methodology for atomistic and course grain modelling techniques.

My aim is to shed light on cell membrane mechanisms which are very difficult or impossible to probe experimentally, such as the interactions between the lipid bilayer and embedded proteins, the relationship between membrane composition and embedded protein function, protein shape and protein functionality, solute interactions, and the effect that subtle PH and ion changes have on membrane/protein structure and function.

My research is funded by the EPSRC
