About the Research
Large-scale computer simulations of polymer materials and macromolecules
Polymer networks, Polymer gel, Grafted nanoparticles, Self-assembly, Phase behavior, Soft matter
Background in large-scale Molecular Dynamics simulations to understand the phase and self-assembly behavior of polymer nanocomposites. Current research focus is using theory and large-scale simulations to understand the reaction kinetics and structural properties of radical polymerized gels and networks.
