Brief Bio:
Sebastian Sensale Rodriguez is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Physics, Cleveland State University (2022 - Present). Dr. Sensale earned his Ph.D. in Bioengineering at the University of Notre Dame (2015 - 2020), where he studied the behavior of nucleic acid molecules in diverse biosensing platforms analytically and computationally. After his PhD, Dr. Sensale performed Postdoctoral research at Duke University (2020 - 2022), where he worked in the computational modeling of dynamic DNA origami nanodevices. His research expertise is in the computational and mathematical modeling of biological systems at the micro and nano scales, with an emphasis on biosensing applications. His research projects have included the development of theoretical models for the prediction of resistive signals in nanopore sensors, the development of coarse-grained models for the prediction of enzyme-driven microtubule detyrosination, and the development of atomistic computational techniques to study THz vibrations of biomolecules. Dr. Sensale is a member of the American Physical Society (2016-Present).
