We are a theoretical physical chemistry group in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Maryland at College Park. We use advanced computational methods to study biological processes at multiple scales, from single protein functional dynamics and chromatin folding and stability to cell-level processes, such as stochastic signal transduction and regulation of cell motility.

Students and postdoctoral research associates working in our group are exposed to diverse areas of equilibrium and nonequilibrium statistical mechanics, polymer physics, computational protein modeling and bioinformatics.

One of our graduate students, Haoran Ni, has recently had his research featured on the cover of The Journal of Physical Chemistry B, as shown in the picture on the right.
