09/17/19 - 9:45 AM to 11:00 AM
Department Seminar: Professor Wei Yang
Professor Yang is a professor in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemisty and the Institute of Molecular Biophysics. He earned his Bachelor of Science in chemistry from Tsinghua University in Beijing, and his doctorate in computational chemistry from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. He was a post-doctoral research in biophysics at Harvard University.
Professor Yang's research interest targets the development and application of state-of-art multi-spectrum atomistic simulation techniques including QM/MM calculation, free energy simulation, conformation path simulation, motion analysis etc., to understand the hidden nature of complex biological phenomena. Specifically, his research program includes three directions:
- first principle based protein and ligand design;
- simulation study of multi-timescale biochemical & biophysical events such as DNA repair, motion- coupled biomolecular recognition, and enzymatic reactions; and
- development of simulation techniques to describe complex systems and enhance efficiency of biomolecular simulations.
