Personal statement:

As a biophysicist I enjoy learning about physics behind the biological phenomena such as metabolite transport. I am also interested in understanding structure-function relation of proteins and the parameters that can affect them. Currently my projects include studying VDAC’s isoforms, the channel-forming transmembrane proteins of mitochondria outer membrane, and interaction mechanisms with their regulators. My goal is to elucidate the underlying reasons that result in the differences observed for VDAC isoforms despite their high structural similarities.
