The research activities of our group are focused on various problems in the general area of soft condensed matter.

We aim to understand the physical and structural properties of both synthetic and biological soft matter, taking into account structural and entropic elasticity, electrostatic interactions, dispersion forces, hydrodynamics, and equilibrium and non-equilibrium fluctuations. These studies are performed using a variety of theoretical tools ranging from analytical tools to Brownian dynamics and Molecular Dynamics simulations more...
