  • Research Interests

    -Development computational methods and tools ofr biological problems that involve molecular structures. The scholar's current work involves developing the simplified representations of 3-dimensional protein structure components to reduce the computation, developing the corresponding energyfunctions using statistical approaches, and improving the optimization process using the geometrical constraints computationally extracted from the protein density. The goal of my research is to contribute from the computer science point of view to the grand challenge of the protein folding problem.
