Dr. Sharon M. Loverde
Assistant Professor of Chemistry
College of Staten Island
The Loverde laboratory utilizes all-atomistic (AA) and coarse-grained molecular dynamics (CG-MD) simulations, in combination with advanced sampling techniques, to investigate soft and biological materials. We are interested in molecular self-assembly, interactions of polymeric and model cellular membranes with hydrophobic drugs, and development of multi-scale models for polymers/biopolymers. We have a strong interest in the development of collaborations with both experimental and theoretical/computational groups.
