Claudio Anselmi, Ph.D.
- Faculty Data Scientist
Claudio Anselmi, Ph.D.'s research interests focus on the use of in silico techniques to understand the transport mechanism of membrane proteins, the structural basis of their functional regulation, and the impact of mutations on their structure and function. He possesses expertise in a wide range of application areas related to molecular modeling, molecular dynamics simulations, and high-performance computing.
He earned his Ph.D. in Chemistry at the University of Rome "La Sapienza," where he developed a statistical thermodynamics model to predict DNA intrinsic curvature and its influence on biological processes. Following that, he completed postdoctoral studies at the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) in Trieste, Italy, the Max Planck Institute of Biophysics, and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. During these postdoctoral studies, he conducted research on the molecular mechanisms of transport across biological membranes. Throughout his career, he has coauthored several scientific articles in peer-reviewed journals in the field of computational biophysics. Additionally, he is a member of the AAAS and ACS societies.
