I develop the computational models of small molecules and chemical processes using quantum or classical mechanics. I also study the biomolecules such as proteins and nucleic acids and their interactions with small molecules. How the drug molecules work, how do they cease to work and how we can develop new drugs are the areas I am exploring through my research.
