I work with Folded and Intrinsically Disordered Proteins


I have done my research at University of Cambridge, UK and University of Groningen, NL. During my Top-Master in Biomolecular Sciences and Doctoral programmes, I have worked on numerical modelling of Intrinsically Disordered Proteins from sparse NMR spectroscopy data and Molecular Dynamics simulations. I am a founder and CEO of Peptone — The Protein Intelligence Company.

AI & Quantum Computing

I am currently invovled in the development of AI and quantum computing methods for rapid calculation of therapeutic protein models from sparse experimental data, including NMR spectroscopy, Cryo-EM Tomography and various low-resolution biophysical techniques.

I am very much interested in protein aggregation and pharmaceutical developability issues. A major part of my scientific curriculum has evolved around the development of accurate charge-charge interaction models for non-canonical protein states, e.g. the 'random-coil'. Together with my team at Peptone — The Protein Intelligence Company, we are looking for smart and autonomous ways to reconcile atomistic-resolution experiments with next-generation computing methods, including quantum computing and quantum optimisation.
