Post-Doc at MPIP
From August 2005 through to May 2008 I worked as a post-doc at the
Max Planck Insitute for Polymer Research
in Mainz. I was a member of Markus Deserno's
membrane theory and simulation group
, within the
of Kurt Kremer. My research focused on how curvature induced by proteins in a biological membrane could effect interactions between the proteins.

The Surface Evolver
- A simulation package for calculating the shape of surfaces that I used. (
