C. Keith Cassidy

I’m a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Oxford. My research centers on the use of molecular simulations to study signal transduction within bacterial chemotaxis. I’m especially interested in the application of integrative modeling to characterize the structure and function of bacterial chemosensory arrays. My work is jointly advised by Professor Mark Sansom and Dr. Phill Stansfeld and funded by the BBSRC. Previously, I held a postdoctoral position with Professor Zan Luthey-Schulten at the NSF Center for the Physics of Living Cells at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In 2017, I received a Ph.D. in Physics from UIUC under the guidance of Professor Klaus Schulten.
