Dina Sharon is involved with simulation studies of biological systems. She graduated from Princeton University with an A.B. in chemistry. Among other projects at Princeton, Dina performed computational research on alkane functionalization by hypervalent iodine species in Prof. John T. Groves’s laboratory. Following graduation, Dina spent a year in Prof. Sason Shaik’s laboratory at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem on a Fulbright Student Grant. While there, she computationally investigated a model complex of an artificial metalloenzyme and discovered a novel ground state electronic structure of the complex, resulting in a publication in the Journal of the American Chemical Society. Prior to joining DESRES, Dina worked at Oliver Wyman as a consultant. In her free time, she enjoys reading, visiting museums, and traveling.
