Jaydeep Bardhan, PhD


About the speaker

Jaydeep Bardhan received his BSc, MEng, and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2000, ’01, and ’06, respectively.  As a doctoral student he was the recipient of a Computational Science Graduate Fellowship award from the US Department of Energy (DOE).

In 2006, Dr Bardhan became the Wilkinson Fellow in Scientific Computing at the Mathematics and Computer Science division of DOE’s Argonne National Lab, and in 2007 he was named a Frederick A. Howes Scholar.

In 2008, Dr. Bardhan moved to the Biosciences division at Argonne, and in 2009 he joined the Department of Molecular Biophysics and Physiology and the Department of Internal Medicine at Rush University Medical Center (Chicago, IL) as an Assistant Professor.

Dr Bardhan’s research is focused on:

  • computational methods for the analysis and design of biological molecules
  • protein study using wide-angle X-ray solution scattering (WAXS)
  • simulation of biomolecular electrostatics
