Wouter Boomsma's research interests cover Markov chain Monte Carlo methods for protein simulations, in particular simulation under restraints from experimental data (e.g. from NMR spectroscopy), but also the problem of conducting mixed Monte Carlo / Molecular Dynamics simulations in an explicit water representation. He has worked on density estimation in various contexts, for instance for quantifying differences between molecular simulations, and as part of the development of a graphical model of the local structure of the protein backbone with the goal of speeding up molecular simulations. He has occasionally worked on strictly sequential features of molecules (i.e., the amino acid sequence), but is mostly interested in the relationship between structure and sequence. Most recently, he has initiated work towards probabilistic models of the structural environments within proteins.
