Laura Lopes

PhD student at CERMICS

I started my undergraduate studies at 2006, initially in Chemistry then in Physics. After I graduate in Physics, I decided to study theoretical Chemistry and I finished a master degree in that area in 2013. In order to specialize myself in the development of new methods for Chemistry I decided to pursue my studies in Math. I got a master degree in applied Mathematics in 2016, that lead me to the PhD!

I'm currently a PhD student at the CERMICS lab (ENPC), under the suppervision of Tony Lelièvre and Jérôme Hénin. I work with rare events sampling in molecular dynamics, more precisely with the AMS method. My goal is to study, improve and implement algorithms to simulate reaction paths for biological systems. This work is developped in collaboration with SANOFI and the TCB Group, University of Illinois.
