This researcher will support related to the research of molecular simulations of polymers and biomolecules at Louisiana State University (LSU). The projects include investigating conformations, physical/thermodynamic properties of polymers, peptides, proteins, and RNAs, building data-driven approaches to predict structures and properties of the soft materials, and free energy calculations of small drug molecules in different environments. Specifically, we are interested in (i) semiconductive polymers with potential applications in wearable devices and soft robotics, (ii) peptides, proteins, and RNAs as therapeutic agents, and (iii) impacts of addictive/solvents in microplastics on human health. We also developed all-atom and coarse-grained molecular models for macromolecules such as polymers, proteins, RNAs, etc.
