About

Hi, I’m Will.

I’m a Chemist by training however my interests are broad and span the fields of Physics, Chemistry and Biology. This breadth led me to the field of Computational Chemistry and to specialise in biomolecular simulation.

The physical laws that describe everything we see around us also dictate how atoms and molecules on the smallest scales function. I use computer simulations to study proteins, the molecular machines that are vital to life.

I have recently completed my DPhil (PhD) at the University of Oxford, as part of the TMCS Centre for Doctoral Training programme, where I investigated membrane protein dynamics and organisation. Over the course of my career I’ve been involved in a variety of projects using simulation techniques ranging from quantum chemical ab initio methods to large scale coarse-grained simulations.
