Hi there, my name is Kasra Manavi and I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University. I am currently working with Professor Nancy Amato working on protein folding, potential calculation, and protein-protein iterations. I also have interests in motion planning, particularly path smoothing and local planning.
My research interests include Computational Biology and Motion Planning.

There are many biochemical processes closely related to the protein folding. Therefore, the studyof 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.
