Howdy! I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University from 2013.

I currently work with Professor Nancy Amato in the field of Computational Biology. Protein folding and protein-ligand docking are my research topics. How to deal with over hundreds degree of freedom problem in computer simulation is a challenge. Click to following project link to learn more detail.

Computational Biology:
Protein Folding
There are many biochemical processes closely related to the protein folding. Therefore, the study of protein folding can give us a deeper understanding of those complex biochemical processes, such as protein-ligand binding, enzyme reactions, and the diseases caused by misfolding like Cystic fibrosis and Marfan syndrome. Since it is quite difficult to experimentally monitor these motions, simulations have become essential to their study. The purpose of this work is to study how protein folds and its motions by PRM (probabilistic roadmap method) framework.
