Since I retired in July 2011, I am affiliated with the University of Paderborn as senior-professor. My last PhD-students finished their dissertation in end of 2011 and the two postdoctoral coworkers at that time moved to other universities to continue their career.
During our active research period, our group was interested in a functional understanding of biological macromolecules and in the control of molecular processes. Our methodology was based on computational techniques like molecular modeling, QM/MM-methods, and molecular dynamics procedures. Together with various cooperating experimental research groups, we applied a synergistic approach toward the investigation of functional (bio)polymers
