PhD Students

 
Eric Behle (FZJ)

Eric continues Jakob's work on large-scale tissue simulations using cellular Potts models. His current focus lies in understanding emergent properties during tumor growth. As a member of the NIC research group "Computational Structural Biology", his regular workplace is at Forschungszentrum Jülich.

Christian Faber (FZJ)

Christian works on contact prediction of RNA, using methods of statistical physics like direct coupling analysis. This method is an example of an inverse statistical mechanics model and highly related to the inverse Ising model. As a member of the NIC research group "Computational Structural Biology", his regular workplace is at Forschungszentrum Jülich.

Fathia Idiris (KIT)

Fathia works in the field of computational chemistry. As a member of the DFG research training group 2450 - "Tailored Scale-Bridging Approaches to Computational Nanoscience", she develops a multi-scale computational framework to simulate enzymatic processes and related large-scale conformational transitions using the example of sensor histidine kinases.

     
     
Julian Herold (KIT)

Julian's interest lies in combining data science with biophysical simulations. He tries to find ways to incorporate machine learning techniques to improve the quality of cell-resolved tissue simulations as used in Jakob's work. Julian is a member of the Helmholtz Information & Data Science School for Health (HIDSS4Health).

Oskar Taubert (KIT)

Oskar works on novel memory-intensive machine learning techniques for protein phenotype prediction.

Arthur Voronin (KIT)

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

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. As a member of the NIC research group "Computational Structural Biology", his regular workplace is at Forschungszentrum Jülich.

Marie Weiel-Potyagaylo

Marie works on the integration of the limited information from small-angle X-ray scattering into molecular dynamics simulations using structure-based models. Using computational-intelligence based methods such as particle swarm optimization, she tries to improve the performance of biomolecular simulation protocols.
