Hello, my name is Trinity Bartleson. I am from Cincinnati Ohio, and I’m a senior at Central State University. I am a Sustainable Agriculture major with a minor in Biology. When I obtain my undergraduate degree in the year 2024, I plan on attending Veterinarian medical school. This summer I am working in Prof. George Stan’s lab to understand the effect of force field by molecular dynamics simulations of anionic surfactant sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) micelles. The goal of this project is to study the atomistic details of the molecular dynamics simulations, calculate the T1 relaxation times of different carbon atoms on SDS and compare them with NMR experimental results. To this end, I am using GROMACS, Visual Molecular Dynamics (VMD), and Python software to run simulations, visualize them and analyze the results, respectively.
