Research interests: 

  • Computational approaches to model plasmonic materials for high-resolution bio-sensing technologies

  • Using ab initio methods to model the interactions between atomic-sized nanoclusters and single molecules

  • Accelerating the performance of software on supercomputers

My Research

 

I am pursuing a PhD in Prof Frank Vollmer's research group on Advanced computational electromagnetism for nanophotonics and biosensing. My research involves developing advanced cutting-edge computational techniques in molecular dynamics and density functional theory to analyse single-molecule sensor data and visualise the structural dynamics of single proteins. This project includes a 2-year research attachment programme at A*STAR in Singapore, where I will use the High Performance Computing facilities to achieve these goals.
