Modelling of interactions between membranes and spherical and aspherical nano-particles
- Interests: Computer simulation, biophysics
- Supervisors: Jens-Uwe Sommer
- Host institution: Leibniz-Institut für Polymerforschung Dresden e. V., Germany
I am starting my PhD at Leibniz-Institut für Polymerforschung Dresden, Germany. I get involved in modelling the interactions between membranes and nano-particles using LAMMPS. I holds a B.Sc in Electronic Science and Technology, from Xiamen University, China. I was enrolled as a Master majoring in theoretical physics in 2011 in Xiamen University. As part of my graduation project, I studyed the scalling and dynamical properties of starlike polymer brushes in theta solvent under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Chenxu Wu and Prof. Dr. Holger Merlitz, which has been published on Polymer.

- ESR4-D: Molecular dynamics simulations of lipid bilayers and their interactions with nano-objects
Theoretical physics, theory in soft matter, computer simulations Contact Chanfei Su Objectives The challenge of this project is to understand the role of molecular properties of self-organized phosphor-lipid bilayers on the interaction behaviour with nano-objects such as spherical nanoparticles, stiff rods and protein-like copolymers: Implementing an appropriately coarse-grained model for bilayer membranes based on highly parallelized LAMPS-code. Dynamics of lipids and ...Read more
