Fabian’s research entails using molecular simulations to characterize the local and collective mechanics of proteins which provide a connection between allostery and global coevolution. Through these simulations, he aims to investigate the elastic dynamical motion of the pathway connecting the binding site to allosteric site, providing information that is currently intractable experimentally, and to develop simulation methods to achieve this goal.


Fabian was born in Linköping, Sweden, and received his M.Eng. in Chemical Engineering in 2018 from University College London in the UK. He wrote his Master’s thesis under the supervision of Dr. Ozgur Yazaydin investigating the adsorption of drugs from water using Metal-Organic Frameworks, through molecular simulations. In the fall of 2018, he joined the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering at the University of Chicago to pursue his Ph.D., co-advised by Professors Juan de Pablo and Rama Ranganathan. In his spare time, he enjoys running, hockey, and spending time outdoors.
