Research interest
  • Molecular simulations of biological membranes and molecules associated with them, with a particular emphasis on membrane-embedded and membrane-bound fluorescent probes. Enhanced sampling and coarse-graining techniques.
  • Quantum calculations of single- and multi-photon absorption properties of fluorescent molecules.
  • Mathematical processing and interpretation of experimental data obtained from polarization microscopy of fluorescent dyes and proteins associated with cell membranes.
  • Molecular dynamics of neuronal calcium sensor (NCS) proteins. Conformational transitions and allosteric effects of calcium binding.
