Research and Creative Works

Research Interest

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.
