BSc (Guelph); MSc (Toronto); PhD (Guelph)
Dr. Sheldon Opps is a theoretical physicist who uses analytical and computational tools to investigate the properties of polymeric systems, including polypeptides, liquid crystals, and bilayer membranes. He has also adopted these tools to study the effects of habitat fragmentation on animal movement patterns in Prince Edward Island.
- Simulation techniques used, include parallel-tempering, discontinuous molecular dynamics (DMD) and transition path sampling
