So far, I have helped to implement a constant-pH molecular dynamics (CpHMD) implementation in GROMACS. Furthermore, I have developed a tool that automates the set up process of such simulations, and I have applied our novel CpHMD implementation to study proton-dependent conformational states of the ion channel GLIC (in collaboration with the Lindahl group). Doctoral advisor: prof. Berk Hess.
