In our research, we investigate the function of proteins involved in various biological energy transduction pathways. Many of these proteins are metalloproteins or cofactor-containing proteins. To study these proteins and processes, we apply a variety of theoretical methods including continuum electrostatics calculations, molecular dynamics simulations and quantum chemical calculations. Moreover, we develop methods to analyze and simulate the energetics and kinetics of charge and exciton transfer processes. Our work is at the interface of theoretical biophysics and biochemistry, bioinformatics and computational biology, bioinorganic chemistry, and structural biology.
