David De Sancho Research
Currently I am an Ramón y Cajal Fellow in the Theoretical Chemistry Unit at the University of the Basque Country and the Donostia International Physics Center in Donostia-San Sebastián (Spain). I do computational work on protein dynamics. My main interest is trying to understand protein folding mechanisms via a quantitative comparison of theory, simulation and experimental observables.
I trained as a biophysical chemist in San Pablo CEU and Complutense Universities. I did my PhD under the supervision of Antonio Rey at the Department of Chemical Physics of Complutense University. Then I undertook postdoctoral work with Victor Muñoz at the Spanish Research Council and Robert Best in the Department of Chemistry of the University of Cambridge. I was able to return to Spain with support of an Ikerbasque Research Fellowship that I held at CIC nanoGUNE.
