Biography

Since January 2015 David Cheung has been a Lecturer in Biophysical Chemistry in the School of Chemistry NUI Galway. Prior to this he was Lecturer in Physical Chemistry in the Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry, University of Strathclyde and a Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellow in the Department of Chemistry and Centre for Scientific Computing, University of Warwick.

 

He started his academic career at the University of Durham where he performed his PhD research in the group of Prof. Mark Wilson. Following this he performed postdoctoral research at the University of Bielefeld (in the group of Prof. Dr. Friederike Schmid) and University of Warwick (in the groups of Prof. Michael Allen and Alessandro Troisi) before beginning his independent career.

 

In his career to date he has published over 40 papers in peer-reviewed journals and made over thirty oral presentations to external research groups and at national and international conferences.

Research Interests

My research focuses on the study of soft interfaces, such as those between different liquids (e.g. oil and water), membranes, or soft surfaces. These systems are ubiquitous, occurring in almost all areas of science and technology, and scientifically fascinating.  By their very nature these are complex systems, with many chemically distinct components that interact in complex ways and the properties of these interfacial systems can also vary over nanometre lengthscales so their behaviour is truly rooted in molecular scale properties. I’m particularly interested in studying processes such as adsorption, assembly and synthesis at soft interfaces, trying to understand how we can use these to create novel, functional materials.   To do this I study these systems using molecular simulations - using computational methods to model these systems on the molecular level. As these are performed at the nanoscale this gives us a molecular level description of these systems, allowing us to link the properties of these systems to the structures of the constituent molecules. Some of my present projects include:

  • Protein adsorption on liquid interfaces
  • Properties of monolayers of functional molecules
  • Complex bilayers and vesicles
  • Protein-biomaterial interactions
