Dr. Noy is a comutational biophysicist interested on the physico-chemical implications for the biological functionality of DNA and proteins. She obtained her degree in the University of Barcelona, and subsequently her PhD in theoretical and computational chemistry under the supervision of Prof. Modesto Orozco (IRB, Barcelona). In the next stage of her career, she moved to the UK with Prof. Ramin Golestanian at the University of Oxford by securing a “Beatriu de Pinos” and a EMBO Long-term postdoctoral fellowships. Her second postdoc was at the University of Leeds in collaboration with Dr. Sarah Harris and Prof. Tony Maxwell. She has gained research independence as an EPSRC Early-career Fellow and a Proleptic Lecturer in Biophysics at the the University of York since 2016, leading the research theme of molecular dynamics simulations. Her research is centered in (i) the study of complex DNA topologies occurred by mechanical and torsional stress, (ii) the recognition of DNA by proteins and other ligands and (iii) the development of new computational tools for measuring how global flexibility emerge from little atomic fluctuations.
