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 theory group of Kurt Kremer. My research focused on how curvature induced by proteins in a biological membrane could effect interactions between the proteins.
