Cedrix F. DONGMO is a Physical Chemist who was awarded his Bachelor of Science (BSc) in 2007. He successfully defended his Master of Science (MSc) thesis in 2009 paying attention on molecular simulation at the University of Dschang www.univ-dschang.org/. During his MSc thesis, he mainly evaluated the Henry's law constant of oxygen in six saturated hydrocarbons using Monte Carlo Complex Chemical System (MCCCS) towhee and empirical potentials, under the guidance of  Dr. M. J. McGRATH and Prof. J. N. GHOGOMU. Soon after his MSc, he attended two years professional training in chemistry education at the Higher Teacher Training College Bambili, Univesrity of Bamenda http://www.unibda.net/ where he graduated in January 2013 with the Second Cycle Secondary School Teacher Diploma (DIPES II) which is graded equivalent to the MSc majoring in a particular subject field.
Cedrix has so far been fascinated in studying the physical and fundamental basis of chemical systems and processes, he has always laid genuine concern for computer based experiments to study the nanoscale and molecular level reactions and he is particularly interested in applying advanced modelling methods to important physical/chemical issues with application to nanomedecine. Since January 2014, he has joined the Scoles' group at the University of Udine, working as TRIL-Research Fellow of The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP). He is applying his skills and knowledge to the design and optimization of peptide-based biosensors for molecular recognition, using state-of-art computational techniques.
