Michael Kuiper

Computational Biomolecular Modeller, Data61

Michael is a computational biomolecular modeller currently working in the Molecular Materials
Modelling Group at Data61 of CSIRO, specializing in molecular simulations. By visualizing and
modelling the molecules of life through computer simulations, researchers gain deeper insights into
health and disease.

Prior to joining the MMM team, Michael worked at the Victorian Life Science Computation Initiative
(VLSCI) supporting medical research as well as participating five seasons with the United States
Antarctic Program (USAP) based in McMurdo and Palmer stations researching antifreeze proteins,
(or why some fish don’t freeze).
