About Dr. Jeff Klauda

ProfessorBefore joining the Department in Fall 2007, Dr. Klauda was an Intramural Research Training Award (IRTA) Postdoctoral Fellow in the Laboratory of Computational Biology at the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, National Institutes of Health (NIH). There, he studied lipid forcefield improvements and dynamical behavior of membranes, and transport of sugars through the cell membrane via proteins. His Ph.D. work mainly involved predicting the thermodynamic stability of gas hydrates and global amount of this alternate source of natural gas. The separation of molecular nitrogen and oxygen via nanoporous carbons was also a part of his doctoral work.
