I try to decipher the molecular basis of chemosensory perception (smell and taste). I use molecular modeling methods, from quantum chemistry to molecular dynamics, as well as bioinformatics and chemoinformatics techniques to describe chemical and biological systems (for instance enzymatic catalysis). I develop new docking protocols based on coarse grained models to understand the association of protein-protein complexes.
