Sri Vembanur Ranganathan
Research Scientist



Sri has joined The RNA institute as the lab manager for the Advanced Computational center.  He is trained in modeling and simulations of biological systems.  During his graduate studies under the guidance of Dr. Shekhar Garde at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, his research focused on water behavior and water-mediated interactions at interfaces.  He worked toward understanding structure, stability and dynamics of interfacially-active biomolecules.  His research yielded a framework to understand biomolecule stability and self-assembly at these interfaces.  Sri is applying his knowledge and skill-set in modeling and simulations to studying nucleic acids and is currently involved in a number of collaborations with RNA biologists and biochemists.
