Research in the Noid group focuses on two main directions:
Our group primarily focuses on developing rigorous statistical mechanical theories and computational methodologies for multiscale modeling. We aim to model phenomena spanning multiple length and time scales.
We also collaborate with experimentalists to address interesting questions regarding biochemistry and active materials. We have developed theory to understand the effects of osmolytes (small neutral organic molecules) on protein thermodynamic stability. Previously, we have investigated the biophysical properties of intrinsically disordered proteins and have also performed simulations to elucidate the effects of glycosylation upon protein folding.
