Members Multiscale Biomolecular Simulation Group



Alexander Schug


PhD Students

Momin Ahmad

Momin tries to understand and analyse the properties of Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs) by doing MD simulations in GROMACS with the aim to improve materials for biological and medical applications.

Ines Reinartz

Ines studies structural transitions of proteins by including experimental data from FRET measurements into molecular dynamics simulations using native structure-based models (SBMs).




Mehari B. Zerihun

Mehari studies RNA structure prediction using couplings derived from co-evolutionary methods.

Arthur Voronin

Arthur works on protein structure prediction by integration of co-evolutionary data into explicit-solvent molecular dynamics simulations.


Marie Weiel

Marie works on the integration of the limited low-resolution information from small-angle X-ray scattering into molecular dynamics simulations.

Oskar Taubert

Oskar works on protein structure prediction using a combination of direct coupling analysis (DCA) and graph drawing methods.


Jakob Rosenbauer

Jakob works on simulations of cell-resolved tissue dynamics. Using the cellular Potts model, he tries to describe pattern formations and conformation changes in tissue in cases like embryogenesis and tumor growth. His regular workplace is at Forschungszentrum Jülich.



We have always openings for Bachelor and Master students. Please contact us if you are interested.

Jan Esch

Jan works on increasing protein thermostability through point mutations using molecular dynamics simulations. After his internship in the group, he is currently employed as a Hiwi.
