I will be starting my group at Biodesign Institute at Arizona State University in January 2018 and will have positions for 2 graduate students and one postdoc. If you are intested in coarse-grained simulations for DNA / RNA nanotechnology and statistical physics apporaches to RNA modeling in synthetic biology / in vivo context, please reach out to me.

I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Studies in Physics and Biology at the Rockefeller University. I did my D.Phil. in the Condensed Matter group at Rudolf Peierls Centre for Theoretical Physics, University of Oxford. I am interested in applications of statistical physics and computer modelling to study of complex systems. As a member of Ard Louis research group, I worked on coarse-grained modelling in biophysics. In close collaboration with Jon Doye's group from the Department of Chemistry, we worked on coarse-grained computational modelling of nucleic acids and applications of the model to biological and bio-inspired systems. Before coming to Oxford, I was a graduate research assistant in Misha Chertkov's group at Los Alamos National Laboratory. During my master's studies at Ecole Polytechnique, I worked with Olivier Martin at LPTMS, Orsay
