Professor Carmen Domene is a computational chemist whose research interest lies in the modelling and simulation of biological systems with a particular focus on membrane proteins and oxygen-sensing enzymes.
Carmen currently works at the University of Bath and from 2012 to 2017 she was Reader in the Department of Chemistry at King’s College London. Prior to that she held a Royal Society University Research fellowship in the Physical and Theoretical Chemistry Laboratory at Oxford. Carmen completed her PhD under the supervision of Patrick Fowler at the University of Exeter and Paul Madden in Oxford where she investigated many-body effects in interionic interactions.
Carmen has spent lengthy periods of time working alongside overseas researchers including at the University of Pennsylvania, USA, in the group of Michael Klein, and at ETH in Switzerland in the group of Michele Parrinello. Her work has been recognised with the 2020 Loew award from the International Society of Quantum Biology and Pharmacology (ISQBP), a EMBO fellowship in 2006, and the JWT Jones Travelling fellowship from the Royal Society of Chemistry in 2005.
