New group member Nazila Yaghini

Nazila Yaghini received her PhD degree in Computational Polymer Chemistry in March 2015 from the University of Amsterdam with the thesis entitled: Towards the architectures of macromolecules, modeling of multi-dimensional polymer chain distributions. After finalizing her PhD, she did a postdoc in modeling protein-DNA interactions at the same university. Then she moved to Norway to advance her skills in all atom molecular simulation techniques at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. 

Her background is in mathematics/informatics with expertise ranging widely from computational modeling, numerical methods, population balance modeling, Monte Carlo techniques and all atom simulation methods to graph theory, database technology, remote sensing and image processing. 

Since May 2017, she has been appointed as a Postdoc in the Polymer Technology group. In her current project at TU/e, she is working on modeling the crystallization kinetics of Nylons.
