Computational Physical Chemistry

Welcome to the Computational Physical Chemistry Group

Our research focuses on understanding solvation and molecular interactions in aqueous interfacial environments using statistical mechanics and state-of-the-art molecular simulation methods. We develop computational methods for deriving supra-atomic coarse-grained models for multiscale simulations of molecular and macromolecular systems.
