Jeremy Smith performs research at the interface of biological, environmental, physical, computational, and neutron sciences.
His work has focused recently on discoveries that could help neutralize chemical weapons, and on using neutron scattering to study bioremediation and protein folding.
His goal is to study and understand the function of biologically relevant molecular systems by employing high-performance computer simulations in combination with biophysical experiments.
Smith is director of the UT/Oak Ridge National Laboratory Center for Molecular Biophysics. He also works with the Joint Institute for Biological Sciences.
