About This PhD Project

Project Description

"Not all proteins fold into well-defined structures. These intrinsically-disordered proteins (IDPs) perform a wide variety of roles and functions within living organisms, for which their disorder is key, from binding to biomineral surfaces for controlling growth and morphology, to protecting plants against drought.
Within the group, we use computational methods (all-atom and coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations and quantum mechanical calculations) to study these systems and understand their function at the molecular level. A detailed understanding can facilitate the rational design of novel peptide and biomimetic structures with well-defined biophysical properties."
