After faculty appointments at HKUST and Drexel, he moved to Florida State University in 2002. His group does theoretical, computational, and experimental research on protein-protein binding kinetics, crowding and confinement effects of cellular environments, and dynamics-function correlations of ion channels.
New simulations show that a high concentration of molecules can significantly increase the rate of reaction between two molecules, but does the setup reflect realities of biochemical reactions inside cells?
