Position title: Biophysics Graduate Student
ByungUk was born and raised in Daegu, in South Korea. He previously attended Seoul National University and earned his bachelor’s degree in February 2021. ByungUk joined the Van Lehn group in Fall 2021 as a member of the Biophysics Program. Outside of research, ByungUk enjoys outdoor sports, reading, and learning new things!
I am interested in applying computational methods to characterize the interactions between biomolecules and nanoparticles. In particular, I am leveraging MD simulations and machine learning models to aid the screening and discovery of potential pharmacophores. Advances in this research may have potential for various industrial applications in the fields of drug designing and delivery, biosensor sensitivity improvement, and synthetic enzyme development.
