My group is interested in studying rare events in complex systems such as folding of proteins, biomolecular isomerisation, self-assembly and nucleation events. To achieve insight in these processes we conduct multiscale modeling simulations of biomolecular systems using rare event- and coarse graining techniques. In addition we continue developing new and advanced simulation methodology such as Transition Path Sampling, replica e xchange, and free energy calculation.
