Bedabrata Choudhury

Bedabrata Choudhury

In Fall 2014, Bedabrata started a rotation project on the molecular mechanism of temperature sensing. The goal of this project is to study the heat-sensitive TRPV1 ion channel with molecular dynamics (MD) simulations and identify regions or conformations of the protein that are sensitive to temperature changes. The work will be carried out in collaboration with the experimental lab of Dr van Horn in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.

Ben Folsom

Ben earned undergraduate degrees at ASU in Film Production and Physics. Ben completed his masters project in the Nanoscience PSM program and graduated in 2014. His project dealt with the behavior of carbon nanotube forests, their interaction with nanoparticles, and their mechanical and electrical properties. He is starting a PhD in Physics at Lund University in the Department of Particle Physics and the new European Spallation Source.

Lennard van der Feltz

Lennard graduated with a Masters of Science in Physics in Fall 2014. His work is concerned with the electrostatics of ion channels and pores. He is primarily using Poisson-Boltzmann calculations to obtain experimentally measurable observables in a semi-quantitative manner.
