Shujie Fan

Shujie is a PhD graduate student in physics. He joined Beckstein Lab in August 2017. He is working on simulation of zinc binding to the YiiP transporter membrane protein. The objective of this project is to find out the transport mechanism of YiiP. To well model zinc ions, he is working on the force field parameterization of a nonbonded zinc dummy model. In the he dummy model, six dummy atoms, which have charge and mass, are connected around a central zinc atom. He also participates in the development of pmda , the parallel algorithms for MDAnalysis .

Shujie obtained his B.S.(2017) in Physics from the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. During his undergraduate years, he worked on the urea channel of Helicobacter pylori using MD simulations in Jakob P. Ulmschneider’s group at SJTU. He joined Beckstein Lab in Fall 2017 for a research rotation. He has strong interests in computational biophysics, especially membrane protein systems.
