Giulia Palermo is a computational biophysicist with expertise in molecular simulations. She is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of California Riverside, and a cooperating Faculty in the Department of Chemistry. Her research uses computational biophysics to clarify the mechanism of action of biological systems of key importance for genome editing and regulation.
She is a native of Italy where she earned her PhD in 2013 from the Italian Institute of Technology, working in the group of Dr. Marco De Vivo. She has been a post-doc in the group of Prof. Ursula Rothlisberger at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), where she worked on ab-initio methods. In 2016, she has been awarded a Swiss National Science Foundation (NSF) post-doctoral fellowship to join the group of Prof. J. Andrew McCammon at the University of California San Diego, where she earned experience in novel multiscale methods enabling the study of increasingly realistic biological systems.
