curriculum vitae   Leave a comment

This is a short version of my curriculum vitae

I have been doing research mainly devoted to the study of discoidal and spheroidal HDL particles containing apoA-I using all atom (AA) and coarse-grained (CG) MD simulations for the last eight years. I have acquired a substantial expertise in the molecular modeling and MD simulations of lipoproteins and lipid membranes using VMD, a software package widely used to visualize and to build molecular models of many relevant biological molecules, and two of the most used molecular dynamics software packages such as NAMD and GROMACS, respectively. 

I have gained experience to run AA and CG MD simulations of model discoidal and spheroidal HDL thanks to the training received during my postdoctoral experience. The collaboration with professors and researchers experts in the field has also improved my knowledge of the MD technique and of the biological and biophysical properties of HDL particles, and it has also contributed to the majority of my publications.

The following links summarize some results of my publications:

All atom (AA) Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations of model discoidal HDL particles

AA and Coarse-grained (CG) MD simulations of model spheroidal HDL particles

CG MD simulations of a model spheroidal HDL particle with a lipid composition similar to human plasma HDL
