Summary

I am a first year PhD student in the Molecular Systems Engineering group being supervised by Prof. Amparo Galindo and Prof. George Jackson. My research focusses on using the Statistical Association Fluid Theory (SAFT) equation of state (to obtain force field parameters) and coarse-graining in molecular dynamic simulations to predict the thermodynamic properties, phase behaviour and structure of biomolecules in aqueous solutions. The systems under consideration are: poly(ethylene oxide), phospholipids and proteins. Poly(ethylene oxide) will be studied to develop the initial methods and procedures, as this molecule shares some properties like its’ size with biomolecules, then the developed strategies will be applied to more complex molecules like phospholipids and proteins.
