Theory of Soft Matter

We are working in the following areas of soft condensed matter:
Structure, dynamics and transport in soft matter systems
Nonequilibrium statistical mechanics and systematic coarse graining
Interfaces and boundary phenomena
Systems under study: polymers, liquid-crystals, colloids, glasses, etc.
Computer simulations: Molecular Dynamics, Monte-Carlo, Brownian dynamics and novel, hybrid schemes
