Fatemeh Khalili-Araghi, PhD
Building & Room:
845 West Taylor St.
Dr. Khalili-Araghi specializes in theoretical and computational studies of ion channels. She obtained her B.S. in Physics from Sharif University of Technology in 2001, and her PhD from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2010. She has been a postdoctoral scholar at the University of Chicago from 2010 to 2013, where she has continued studies of membrane proteins with a focus on the NaK ATPase using computational modeling techniques, as well as molecular dynamics simulations. Her research at UIC will continue on theoretical and computational studies of membrane proteins.
