Dr. Farshid Mohammad-Rafiee
Ph.D. in Physics
Associate Professor

My Research interest lies in the field of physics of soft matters and biological systems. The main focus of the research done in my group, is the use of physics to understand the organization and dynamics of biological matters. I am, in particular, interested in mechanical properties of DNA, nucleosome positioning and dynamics, molecular motors such as RNA polymerase and ribosome, electrostatic properties of biological polyelectrolytes, and active and passive membrane deformations.
