Dejun Lin was a postdoc fellow joint-advised by William Noble and Cole Trapnell. He is interested in modeling genome 3D architecture and its dynamics in various cellular processes such as differentiation. He is also interested in understanding how dynamics of genome architecture are related to gene regulation at different stages of these processes. He received a B.S. in Biological Sciences from Nankai University in China. He then completed his Ph.D. in Dr. Alan Grossfield’s lab at the University of Rochester, where he developed molecular models of lipids and lipid membrane-targeted antimicrobial lipopeptides. He used molecular dynamics simulations and statistical mechanics to investigate the molecular mechanism of antimicrobial lipopeptides’ interaction with lipid membranes.
