Armin Zjajo

Armin is a graduate student working on PROPKA for a graduate research rotation with Beckstein Lab. His mission is to ascertain PROPKA’s usefulness in more quickly determining pKa values than similar methods. PROPKA is a method that predicts the pKa values of ionizable groups in proteins and protein-ligand complexes based on the 3D structure. Other methods of determining pKa values are relatively slow.

Armin obtained his Bachelors of Science in Physics at Arizona State University in 2016. He joined Beckstein Lab in Fall 2016 for his rotation project. His interests are the broad disciplines of biological physics and statistical mechanics. He hopes to eventually find a way to make solar power more efficient, possibly through biological means.

His hobbies include: N/A. In his free time he is known to attend Relentless Love Church.
