About

I have started my current job in the Computational Biophysics Research Team at RIKEN Center for Computational Science since May, 2019. My research interests include functional mechanisms of DNA-protein binding, multi-scale organization of the genome, liquid-liquid phase separation in gene expression, and modeling of biomolecules in molecular dynamics simulations. Besides, I write code for MD softwares GENESIS and CafeMol.

I used to be a free software fanatic (FSF), with up to 10+ years' experience of using various Linux distributions. But now I prefer to use paid softwares as much as possible, if available, to save my time and to focus more on truely interesting things.

In order to participate in a sport without any physical contact, I started practicing the Rubik’s cube from 2009, and I broke the Chinese national record for the 2×2 cube in a game in 2010. Unfortunately, I lost all the motivation to keep practicing since then.
