Promita Chakraborty

Promita Chakraborty is a Research Associate at Berkeley Lab's Molecular Foundry, and a computer science PhD candidate at Virginia Tech. Her research interest focuses on understanding the 3D structures and dynamics of biological macromolecules, and applying that knowledge towards designing of physical models that exhibit protein-like folding and unfolding. In the long-term, she is interested in studying the relationship between shape, dynamics and assembly of biological structures at various scales, and applying them to make accurate physical models that "talk" to the computer.
