Computational Hybrid Soft Materials Laboratory

About the Lab

Soft materials encompass a wide range of materials, such as polymers, colloids, foams, emulsions, gels and biological materials, whose properties arise from an interplay of processes across multiple scales. The objective of our research program is to develop computational methodologies and radical characterization tools to enable the design, conception and prediction of novel soft materials of specific structure and morphology, with controllable kinetic, thermodynamic, transport and mechanical properties. Our results can be used to guide the design of experimental systems for applications in medicine, sustainability and energy.
