Dr Owain Kenway joined UCL in 2005 as a PhD student in the Centre for Computational science within the Chemistry department, studying ways to efficiently run molecular dynamics simulations on a geographically distributed computational grid.  In 2009 he completed his PhD thesis "Molecular dynamics simulations of complex systems including HIV-1 protease".


He spent brief period writing software for a joint UCL/LSU research project, and then as a group systems administrator, before joining Research Computing (under the old ISD organisational structure) as a "User and applications support specialist" in 2010.


He now works within the Research Computing and Facilitating Services platforms team within Research IT Services as a Research Computing Analyst.
