Shujie Fan

Shujie is a graduate student who is currently doing a research rotation project with Beckstein Lab. He is working on force field parametrization for the Zn2+ ion using a nonbonded dummy model. In the dummy model, six dummy atoms, which have charge and mass, are connected around a central zinc atom. This model can help solve problems with transition-metal ions, such as MD simulations of the YiiP transporter, without using QM/MM methods.

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.
