Yusuf Hamied Department of Chemistry


Professor of Computational and Molecular Biophysics

Rosana is the Professor of Computational and Molecular Biophysics at the Departments of Chemistry and Genetics, and a Winton Advanced Research Fellow in the Department of Physics. Her group develops multiscale modelling approaches to investigate the physicochemical driving forces that govern DNA packaging inside cells, membraneless compartamentalization via liquid-liquid phase behaviour of biomolecules (proteins, nucleic acids, and chromatin), chromatin structure, epigenetic phenomena, and the relationship between the structure of the genome and gene expression regulation.
