Soft Matter Theory

Research in our group is devoted to the investigation of the physical properties of soft and organic condensed matter systems using analytical theory and classical computer simulations. The topics studied by our group cover a broad range of systems and include, for instance, the (non)equilibrium structure and phase behavior of colloidal and polymeric fluids, protein structure and dynamics in aqueous (poly)electrolyte solutions, protein adsorption to soft interfaces, or the self-organization of hybrid materials for optoelectronic applications and efficient energy storage. Our group employs approaches from classical statistical mechanics and liquid state theory and various computer simulation techniques, such as molecular dynamics (MD) or  Brownian dynamics (BD) simulations.
