Research Project Description: 

We provide learning and hands-on opportunities for those who interested in physical modeling, molecular dynamics or stochastic simulation, and visualization of biomolecular systems with projects from our planned and ongoing computational biophysics researches Those who interested in employing physical principles, e.g. from statistical physics, condensed matter physics, quantum mechanics etc.., to discover underlying mechanisms of living systems are particularly welcome. Contact PI ( for specifics.

Undergraduate Student Participation: 

The students are anticipated to work actively with graduate students (or with PI occasionally) on solving mutually interested problems, conducting literature search, modeling and simulation, or assisting tutorial and methodological developments.

List any lab and computer programming courses you have completed (with grades received) and for which you are currently enrolled.
Briefly describe any previous research experience (less than 300 words). If you have previously received course credit for student research, list those courses here (with grades received) and the name(s) of your supervisor(s).
Give a brief statement (less than 300 words) summarizing what qualities you will bring to the research program and explaining what you hope to achieve through your participation. (Is there something essential that you want to get out of the project? Paid position? Senior thesis? Co-author a journal publication?)
