Prof. Dr. Kurt Kremer
Research projects: Biomolecular Modelling
Christine Peter studied chemistry and mathematics at the University of Freiburg and received her diploma in chemistry in 1999 with a thesis on solid-state NMR spectroscopy. In 2003 she obtained her PhD at the ETH Zurich in the group of Prof. W.F. van Gunsteren on biomolecular simulation. After staying as a PostDoc in the group of Dr. G. Hummer at the National Institutes of Health, she joined the Theory Group at the MPI-P as a PostDoc to work on the development of multiscale simulation models for photoswitchable liquid crystals. Since August 2008, she is heading an Emmy Noether junior research group at the MPI-P on the “Development of coarse grained simulation models to study structure formation and self assembly in peptide systems”. Her research interests are (bio)molecular simulation, development of multiscale simulation methods, thermodynamics, biological and bio-inspired materials, and structure formation in biological systems.
