Dr Vasily Oganesyan
Reader in Computational Chemistry
Vasily’s research interests broadly concern with the areas of chemistry and molecular biophysics which require the application of the methods of physical, theoretical and computational chemistry for analysing data from advanced spectroscopic techniques applied to molecular systems. These include Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR), Magnetic Circular Dichroism (MCD), Nuclear Inelastic Scattering (NIS) and muon spectroscopy.
Vasily’s current research focuses on Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations on complex molecular systems with introduced spin labels and probes and advancing theoretical/computational approaches for prediction of motional EPR spectra from MD results. This includes proteins and soft matter systems such as liquid crystals and phospholipids assemblies. Vasily’s group combines modelling work with experimental EPR.
