Benjamin Lindner


Brief Introduction

Dr. Lindner got his master degree in nano-physics from University of Wurzburg of Germany in 2006. Then, he joined the Oak Ridge National Laboratory and pursued his Ph.D. in Molecular Biophysics at the University of Tennessee Knoxville in the United States between 2007 and 2012. In 2013 and 2014 he continued his work at Oak Ridge National Laboratory as a Postdoc on projects related to his Ph.D. work. During his time at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory he got intensively exposed to scientific research in the areas of molecular dynamics simulation and modeling, theoretical scattering calculations, high performance computing, parallel programming and big data modeling and analysis, including Markov Modeling of molecular systems.

Research Interests

His active interest is targeted towards making use of computing to advance the methodological toolset of scientific experimentation on molecules and to advance the field of molecular medicine. Recent research activities included the study of decentralized computing platforms with embedded economic principles as a means to close the incentive gap between targeted scientific computation and the creation of an open molecular knowledge base.
