Martin Field

Current Positions

Researcher in the Groupe Modélisation et Chimie Théorique at the Laboratoire Chimie et Biologie des Métaux in Grenoble, France.

Visiting researcher in the Theory Group at the Institut Laue-Langevin in Grenoble, France.

Research Interests

The development and application of computational and theoretical tools for understanding processes of biological interest, principally at the molecular level.

Algorithmic Projects

    • Enhanced quantum chemical (QC) and molecular mechanical (MM) potentials.
    • Hybrid QC/MM potentials for studying chemical reactions in solution and in enzymes.
    • Methods for exploring transition processes in complex systems.

Application Projects

    • Enzymatic reaction mechanisms.
    • Mechanistic studies of hydrogen-evolving and water-splitting catalysts.
    • Conformational transitions, ligand-binding and ligand-diffusion in proteins.
    • Simulation of self-assembly and self-organization processes.
