Michael V. LeVine applies simulation to study biological systems, with a focus on ion channels and protein-nucleic acid complexes. Michael received a Ph.D. in biophysics from Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University, as well as a B.A. in chemistry, molecular biology, and neuroscience from Wesleyan University, where he received high honors in chemistry. Prior to joining DESRES, he was an independent faculty at Weill Cornell, where he used statistical mechanics and information theory to develop new models of allostery. Outside of the office, Michael enjoys working out, reading, and politics.
