About the Research

Research Theme

In silico design of new molecules, materials and reactions


Chemical databases, Quantitative Structure-Property Relationships (QSPR), Machine learning
Research Outline

My research was focused on exploration and analysis of chemical space, as well as Quantitative Structure-Property Relationships modeling, from redox properties to the biological activity of antimalarial drugs or pairs of anti-cancer drugs. Now, in addition to QSPR modeling of reaction parameters, I study approaches for generation of novel compounds and reactions by Deep neural networks.
