Docendo discimus (by teaching, we learn)
Erik Lascaris received his Physics PhD from Boston University in 2014 for his studies on Liquid-Liquid Phase Transitions, continuing his research there until 2018 as a Postdoctoral Associate and Lecturer.
My primary research question is: how can we apply and improve computer simulations to better understand and predict the behavior of fluids at the molecular level, and determine their macroscopic properties? This research involves techniques such as Molecular Dynamics simulations, coarse-graining models, multi-scale physics, etc. and includes the development of new methods and algorithms.
