My research group use theoretical and computational methods to study solids, liquids and assemblies of macromolecules, including those relevant to living organisms. Over the past five decades we have developed methodologies and carried out simulations to understand the dynamical behavior of solids and liquids, the structure of water and organic solutions, the phase behavior of surfactants and biological lipids, and the dynamics of proteins and other biological macromolecules.
