Theoretical and Computational Biophysical Chemistry

We are primarily interested in understanding chemical and biological phenomena from the first principle. The problems we investigate are interdisciplinary in nature, so are the tools used. We develop and use a variety of computer simulation techniques and apply to chemical and biological problems.

Currently, we are working on the following problems:

  • Development of enhanced Monte Carlo simulation techniques to explore the energy landscape of water clusters and biomolecules.
  • Properties of RNA with the non-Watson-Crick base pair.
  • Development of a model of the cytoplasm of a bacterial cell and understanding diffusion and hydrodynamics.
  • Development of Random Walk models to study anomalous diffusion.
  • Effect of molecular crowding on biomolecular systems.
  • Elucidation of allosteric inhibition mechanism.


At present I have a DST project position.

The Ph.D. admission in JNU is based on written test and interview. If you have CSIR-JRF (or cleared other equivalent exam), then it is only
