Zeke Piskulich

Postdoctoral Fellow (06/2021-present)

Zeke received his B.S. degree in Physics from the University of Missouri, Columbia, in 2017. Zeke received his Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Kansas in 2021 where he worked with Profs. Ward H. Thompson and Brian B. Laird developing a fluctuation theory approach for calculating activation energies using simulations at a single temperature. Zeke started in the Cui group in June 2021. He is now investigating the interactions between nanoplastic particles and lipid vesicles as a part of the NSF Center for Sustainable Nanotechnology. He is also currently interested in improving analysis of enhanced sampling techniques used to estimate phase transition temperatures in lipid membranes.
