Biomolecular modeling and QSPR


After graduated from CUHK with a BSc in Chemistry, I was trained in USA as a computational chemist in the early 90s under the supervision of Prof. B. M. Pettitt focusing on the biomolecular structures and energetics of DNA triple helices. My interests in applying physical principles to biomolecules was further enhanced during my postdoctorate at UT Austin (USA) with Prof. P. J. Rossky on investigating the hydration structures of membrane proteins. When came back to Hong Kong at HKBU til to date, I continued in broadening my exploration in computatonal chemistry to touch on various interdiscplinary topics.
