Vincent Voelz received his B.S. in Physics in 1999 from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. As an undergrad, he worked on biophysical modeling and spectroscopy of motor proteins in the laboratory of David D. Thomas. He then pursued graduate work in computational studies of protein folding with Ken Dill at the University of California-San Francisco, receiving a Ph.D. in Biophysics in 2007. Dr. Voelz 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 at Temple University in Philadelphia, where he is a member of the Institute for Computational Molecular Science, focusing on simulation methods for biomolecular dynamics and peptidomimetic design.
