Julian Charles Shillcock

Biographie

Julian received his PhD at Simon Fraser University in Canada for work on Monte Carlo simulations of liquid crystal phase transitions and the elastic properties of fluid and polymerized membranes.   He was a Group Leader at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces, Germany for five years applying coarse-grained simulation techniques - principally Dissipative Particle Dynamics (DPD) and Brownian Dynamics - to equilibrium and dynamic properties of fluid lipid membranes. A major target of this research was to reveal the molecular rearrangements that occur during vesicle fusion. During this time, he developed a commercially-available, parallel DPD code that is being used by several universities.   He was an Associate Professor at MEMPHYS in the Department of Physics and Chemistry, University of Southern Denmark. He has also worked in industry, designing and writing software for communication satellite simulations (British Aerospace, 1986-1990), and fluid simulation software (Accelrys, Inc., 1998-1999).   He joined the Blue Brain Project in 2011, and uses mesoscale simulation techniques, together with theoretical analysis and collaborations with experimentalists, to study the dynamics of cellular processes. Current projects include simulating the formation of the post-synaptic density in dendritic spines and developing theoretical models of the supramolecular organisation of synapses. He also teaches Master's and PhD courses in computational cell biology and biophysics.  He wrote and maintains an open source dissipative particle dynamics simulation code: https://github.com/Osprey-DPD/osprey-dpd  Orcid: orcid.org/0000-0002-7885-735X
