About me

Marzieh Saeedimasine was born on April 21, 1988 in Iran. She received her M.SC. degree in 2012 and Ph.D. degree in 2016 in physical chemistry (Tehran, Iran). During her Ph.D, she spent as visiting researcher at MMK (Alexander Lyubartsev). In 2017-2019 she has worked as postdoctoral researcher at Karolinska Institute (Alessandra Villa). Now she is continuing  her research as postdoct researcher in Prof. Alexander Lyubartsev group at MMK. Her work experience is mostly focused on molecular dynamics simulation of bio-nano materials at different levels.


  1. Potential mean force and binding free energy for interaction of nanomaterials with building blocks of biomolecules
  2. Role of lipid composition and protein on the structural and mechanical features of biological membrane
  3. Potential mean force of drug translocation to the membrane using advanced sampling methods
