Biography

Vincent Voelz received his B.S. in Physics in 1999 from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, where he worked on biophysical modeling and spectroscopy of motor proteins in the laboratory of David D. Thomas.   He then pursued graduate work in computational biophysics at the University of California-San Francisco, working Ken Dill’s group on computational studies of protein folding, receiving a Ph.D. in Biophysics in 2007.   Vince then worked as postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Prof. Vijay Pande at Stanford University, using distributed computing and kinetic network models to study protein folding.  His independent career began in 2011 as an assistant professor at Temple University in Philadelphia, where he is a member of the Institute for Computational Molecular Science, focusing on molecular simulation methods for studying conformational dynamics and peptidomimetic design.
