Polymer Translocation
Rigid Rods in Hahn Cells

As my primary project is nanopore translocation, I use both the Espresso simulation package as well as coding simulations using the exact numeric approach. Running on as many computers as SHARCNET/HPCVL will give me, the goal is to carefully describe the dynamics of translocation. Additionally, we are building interesting systems where we look at the effect of an asymmetry across the membrane. In particular, the simulations where an increasing amount of disorder is added to one side of the membrane yield dramatic - and somewhat surprising - results.

Outside of the lab, time is spent biking - when the Ottawa climate allows it - and playing music when it doesn't.
