I joined the Computational Biophysics Research Team at RIKEN Center for Computational Science in May 2019, where I currently work. One of my primary responsibilities is to develop code for molecular dynamics software GENESIS (and CafeMol in my last job). My research interests in computational biophysics are:

  • Modeling biomolecules in molecular dynamics simulations,
  • Biomolecular condensation via liquid-liquid phase separation,
  • Functional conformational changes of protein and DNA,
  • Multi-scale organization of the genome.

In addition to my professional work, I enjoy participating in non-contact sports, and in 2009, I began practicing the Rubik’s cube. My passion and dedication paid off in 2010, when I set a new Chinese national record for the 2×2×2 cube during a competition. Although I have not maintained the same level of practice since then, I am still proud of my achievement and encourage others to pursue their hobbies and passions outside of work. For those interested, my official records can be found on the World Cube Association website.
