Professor Irene Yarovsky

Irene Yarovsky is currently Professor of Theoretical Physics and Program Leader for Biophysics and Bioengineering of the Health Innovations Research Institute of RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia. Prof. Yarovsky will contribute expertise in molecular simulations to develop molecular design principles and a rational approach to engineering novel surface treatments and materials with antimicrobial properties. Molecular simulation work will help narrow down materials design options based on the fundamentals of intermolecular interactions between the synthetic surfaces and naturally occurring biomolecules.
