Research interests

  • Using molecular dynamics simulations to study the interaction of shape-shifter bullvalenes with cyclodextrin receptor molecules, characterising the binding modes of host-guest complexes (with Dr Thomas Fallon)
  • Development of a profiling method to determine the best binding mode of the complexes, and rapidly screen for binding orientations
  • Alchemical free energy calculations; calculating binding free energies from molecular simulations for the complexes
