Research experience:

Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, University of California Santa Barbara, CA 93106

Assistant Research (i.e. Research Assistant Professor),working for Prof. Joan-Emma Shea and Prof. Michael T. Bowers on folding and oligomerization of amyloid-disease-related proteins (amylin of type II diabetes, amyloid-β peptides of Alzherimer disease, prion protein fragment of mad cow disease).

Methodology development


Protein/Lipid/Ligand force field development

We are developing a set of 37 AMBER lipids (To be come)!


Parallel implementation of replica-exchange method and simulation analysis tools



Amyloid fibril inhibition and dye binding

                      (Predicted binding mode for Alzheimer's amyloid detection)



Amyloid fibril formation

                             (Predicted new drug target of type II diabetes)



Protein folding

                           (High-resolution structure predication)
