Research interests

My studies focus on understanding the behaviors of biopolymers and biomolecular systems by using simple and coarse-grained models, computer simulations and statistical mechanics approaches. My research problems include topics of protein folding, protein aggregation, amyloid formation, DNA condensation, and folding of membranes and ribbons.

Examples of Ulva linza spore configuration for single (top left) and multiple spores on an unit cell of a Sharklet microtopographic surface. The spores of 5 μm in diameter are shown as filled purple circles. The Sharklet surface has four distinct features (yellow) of lengths equal to 4, 8, 12 and 16 μm, respectively. The feature width and the feature spacing are equal to 2 μm. The configurations are obtained by Monte Carlo simulations in the extended surface energetic attachment (SEA) model with spore-spore excluded volume interaction. The study shows that inter-organism interactions alter their attachment behaviors in high-density fouling. From Hoang TX, Mai HTH, Brennan AB, Le L. (2019).
