Helgi I. Ingólfsson obtained his Computer Science B.S. degree from the University of Iceland in 2002 and his Ph.D. degree in Computational Biology and Medicine from Weill Cornell Medical College in 2010. He worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Groningen from 2011 to 2016, after which he joined Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory as a Staff Scientist. His research is focused on the lipid organization of cellular membranes and their perturbation by small molecules, lipid protein interactions, and how membrane proteins can be functionally regulated by their lipid environment. He addresses these questions using a combination of experimental and computational methods, utilizing atomistic, coarse-grained as well as novel multiscale molecular dynamics methods.
