Research: Evaluating Biophysical Parameters Driving Protein Self-Assembly

Hi I’m Adip. I’m a PhD student in the Jenkins program originally from Hyderabad, India. Out of a number of biological phenomena, I’ve become most fascinated with how proteins interact with their network of partners and assemble into functional machinery with precise spatial and temporal organization. My research work in the Johnson Lab involves using theory and molecular simulations to understand how biophysical constraints on association rates, interaction strengths and spatial domain drive spontaneous self-assembly of proteins. 

While proteins do enjoy their minimum energy wells through networking and socializing, my most stable states of enjoyment include playing tennis, video games and watching football (the one played with feet). Although with enough activation energy, I do enjoy the occasional visits to the metastable states of hiking and travelling.
