Alexander Matthew Payne
Alex is a Ph.D. student interested in understanding how proteins move! He has recently joined the labs of John Chodera and Richard Hite to work on a joint project involving molecular dynamics and Cryo-EM. His goal is to generate conformational ensembles from Cryo-EM data and simulate the ensemble using massive scale molecular dynamics via Folding@Home. He is also excited by the opportunity to bring scientists from different backgrounds together around the common goal of fighting the virus and is eager to help communicate that scientific knowledge to everyone he can!
