Garcia Research Group

Research Interests

Our research focus on the use of theoretical and computational methods to study aspects related to biomolecular dynamics and statistical mechanics. Our main research objectives are to understand the folding, dynamics and stability of biomolecules. Research interests include the hydrophobic effect, and enzyme catalysis, nucleic acid structure and dynamics, RNA folding, electrostatics, protein hydration, and peptide interactions with membranes.
