My field of expertise is computational statistical mechanics, in particular, the application of molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo methods to the study of fluids. My research focuses primarily on connecting structural and dynamical properties of complex fluids. Currently, we are investigating the effects of surface interactions on the transport properties of confined fluids, as well as investigating the conformational transitions associated with polymers grafted to surfaces.
