Here's a taste of what I've been thinking about lately

01 | Molding the (mal)function of von Willebrand factor

With coarse-grained MD simulations like the one in this clip, I'm studying how the protein that clots your blood and regenerates wounded tissue behaves and misbehaves in its nonequilibrium environment.

02 | Steering evolution with tools from quantum mechanics

We recently published this awesome work, where we design non-equilibrium selection protocols to robustly steer the evolution of high-dimensional populations, in Nature Physics. 

03 | The price of information transfer in living cells 
Here's a sneak peek from our manuscript exploring the trade-offs between speed, fidelity and energy consumption in Kinase-Phosphatase push-pull loops.
