Our research focuses on several problems in contemporary biophysics and condensed matter theory, using modern tools of statistical mechanics and molecular simulation: 

  • folding and design principles in proteins 
  • peptide structure, self-assembly, and aggregation
  • water and aqueous solutions
  • multiscale modeling and advanced molecular simulation methods
