About This Project

Could you imagine if, having shaken a box of jigsaw puzzle pieces, you found the puzzle complete?

Proteins perform similar miracles every day, but how?

Statistical mechanics helped us develop the steam engine and computers. In this work, I apply statistical mechanics to predict how much time protein-like systems need to self-organize.

This is basic research. It could lead to new methods of drug discovery/design, metabolic engineering, and more.
