Theoretical and Computational Biophysical Chemistry

We are primarily interested in understanding chemical and biological phenomena from the first principle. The problems we investigate are interdisciplinary in nature, so are the tools used. We develop and use a variety of computer simulation techniques and apply to chemical and biological problems.

 Currently we are working on the following problems:
  • Development of enhanced Monte Carlo simulation techniques to explore the energy landscape of water clusters and biomolecules.
  • Properties of RNA with non-Watson-Crick base pair.
  • Development of a model of cytoplasm of a bacterial cell and understanding diffusion and hydrodynamics.
  • Developement of Random Walk models to study anomalous diffussion.
  • Effect of molecular crowding on biomolecular systems.
