Current project:

I work on an extensive and automated virtual drug screening procedure that through a series of increasingly refined steps, based on molecular docking, molecular dynamics simulation, and free energy perturbation, will create a straightforward pathway to obtain a potential drug candidate against a specified target.

Previous project:

Using molecular dynamics simulations, I investigated how specific mutations of the cytochrome bc1 complex in malarial parasites affect the inhibition mechanism of known malarial drugs in the complex.
