Personal profile

Please call me Kevin :) I received my PhD from City University of Hong Kong in 2017. I completed my postdoctoral training at the College of Pharmacy, Ohio State University, United States (2017-2021). I then worked as a fellow at Shanghai Institute for Advanced Study, Zhejiang University (2021-2024). Meanwhile, I were a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Quantitative Biology, College of Life Sciences of Zhejiang University and Center for Precision Medicine of Shenzhen Luohu People’s Hospital. I joined Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University as an Assistant Professor in 2024. 

Since my PhD, I have pursued an interdisciplinary research program on the interface of molecular simulation, drug discovery and machine learning. My current research interests are artificial intelligence for biomolecular dynamics (AI4Science) and molecular simulations of various complex biomolecular systems, including the human immunological synapse, the bacterial membrane protein assembly, the CRISPR genome editing tools, and design of molecular glues for protein machinery. I published 20+ high-quality papers in peer-reviewed journal, including Nature, Nature Communications, PNAS, JCIM, JPCB etc. I also actively serve in the academic community as a member of Biophysical Society, American Chemical Society, The Protein Society.
