My name is Eiji Yamamoto, in Japanese
My research theme is to investigate function, diffusion, and interaction of biomolecules in cell membranes using computational techniques such as molecular dynamics simulations. Moreover, I am interested in what the vast number of water molecules do in biological systems.
Research interests: Molecular Dynamics Simulations, Biophysics
