Research Fields:

My Research is focused on the theory and simulation of Soft Matter systems, colloidal forces and self-assembly in solution at the nano and microscale. This includes self-assembly in vesicles, membranes, organic molecules at surfaces, assembly of nanoparticles (for example, magnetic NPs). To obtain an atomistic/molecular understanding of these systems, I employ tools based on Statistical Physics and modelling tools such as Molecular Dynamics simulations, coarse-grained modelling and others. I am also interested in developing new simulation tools for nanoparticles and softmatter.
