Research expertise: the development and application of molecular simulations and statistical mechanics to the study of condensed materials such as liquids, solids, and colloidal suspensions. Current research topics include:

  • static and dynamic properties of magnetic liquids;
  • self-assembly, adsorption, and friction of amphiphilic and polymeric molecules at liquid-solid interfaces;
  • using molecular simulations to complement scattering and reflectivity experiments;
  • thermal properties of complex fluids;
  • biomolecular self-assembly and biomineralisation.
