Sri Vembanur Ranganathan
Research Scientist



Sri has joined the Advanced Computational center of the RNA institute as a molecular modeling research scientist. He is trained in the molecular modeling and simulations of biological systems. Specifically, his graduate research focused on water behavior and water-mediated interactions at interfaces towards understanding structure, stability and dynamics of interfacially-active biomolecules. His research work yielded a framework to understand biomolecule stability and self-assembly at interfaces. He is applying his knowledge and skill-set in modeling and simulations to study nucleic acids and is currently involved in a number of collaborations with RNA biologists and biochemists.
