I finished my PhD in the Institue for Molecular Bioscience (IMB) of the University of Queensland. Right now, I am working as a postdoc associate in Dr. Biggin's Group in the SBCB of the University of Oxford.


I am interested in the Cys-loop receptors, such as nicotinic acetylcholine receptor and glycine receptor. Currently, I am working on the glycine receptor using molecular dynamics simulations.
