Multidisciplinary scientist with a PhD in Biological Design from Arizona State University. Currently working on RNA modeling projects at Max Planck Medical Research. Focused on developing software that helps researchers do their best work. Experienced in both theoretical and experimental lab work, inspired by biology's structural beauty.
Erik Poppleton, Researcher at Arizona State University, described how computational models can be useful for designing nanotechnology. Modeling can create higher resolution outcomes, give us mechanistic understanding of interactions, and perform experiments that would otherwise be impossible. In short, modeling can make it faster and more efficient to test out nanotechnology designs. Erik has been developing oxView, a visualizer for DNA nanostructures as well as a python library for simulating those nanostructures. The outcome is that the design process has dramatically improved for people who want to see, build, and share their ideas in the field of nanotechnology.
