Prof Halim Kusumaatmaja
(Durham University)

The join button will be published 30 minutes before the seminar starts (login required).

Abstract

Prof Halim Kusumaatmaja's group is interested in theoretical and computational soft matter and biophysics. Their work is interdisciplinary, lying at the interface between Physics, Chemistry, Engineering and Biology. They are also part of the Durham Centre for Soft Matter, the Biophysical Sciences Institute, and the SOFI CDT. See here for more detailed descriptions.

OCIAM TBC

Professor John Maddocks
(École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL))

The join button will be published 30 minutes before the seminar starts (login required).

Further Information

Born in Scotland and a former member of the British Olympic sailing team, the mathematician obtained his doctorate in Oxford. After several years as professor of mathematics in Maryland, USA, he returned to Europe to the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), where he has worked for nearly 20 years.

John Maddocks is a prominent expert in the multiscale modeling of DNA, the nucleic acid-based biological molecule that carries genetic information. He is interested above all in the nanomechanical properties of DNA molecules. These properties determine how DNA is "packed" and stored in our cells.
