Soft condensed matterWe are interested in statistical mechanics and "soft condensed matter".
Statistical mechanics is the theory of the interplay of very large numbers of particles. Typically, in a piece of material that is used in an application there are 1023 particles. Obviously, one cannot solve all their equations of motion exactly. Hence we need to develop approximate theories to predict materials properties.
Soft condensed matter means everything which is dense, but can easily be deformed. Most biological materials are soft condensed matter and many "everyday substances" such as paint, glass or dairy products.
We are doing computer simulations (Monte Carlo and Molecular Dynamics) and theory (Density Functional Theory, Projection Operator Formalism).
