Research Interests: 
  • Molecular dynamics simulation on the effects of cosolvents (urea, tetramethyl urea (TMU), and trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO), alcohols, etc) on the conformation and stability of proteins
  • Quantum theory study on the transition metal catalysts activating small organic molecules, like CO2, aldehyde and ketones, ester, etc.
