Evolutionary analysis of molecular movements

I'm working as a DPhil student under the joint supervision of Dr. Phil Biggin and Prof. Jotun Hein.

The goal of my project is to find new, sensible ways of comparing the dynamics of functionally related proteins. Combining simulation- and evolutionary data, I'm trying to identify conserved patterns in the essential dynamics of homologous proteins. Since dynamics forms a bridge between structure and function, such analysis may help to understand the link between sequence-, structure- and function evolution. The optimal way of comparing molecular movements is, however, far from trivial. Besides molecular dynamics, this project involves bioinformatics and data mining.

I'm placed at the Structural Bioinformatics and Computational Biochemistry Unit (Department of Biochemistry) and also at the Genome Analysis and Bioinformatics Group (Department of Statistics). Besides this, I'm a student of the Systems Biology Doctoral Training Centre.

I completed my MSc degree in the Department of Biological Physics at the Eotvos Lorand University, Budapest.
