Computational Soft matter Lab

Mission statement

Soft materials show complex features over a wide range of length and time scales. We aim to understand the emergent complexity of soft-matter systems by means of computational methods. Our interdisciplinary effort brings in advanced computational methods, theoretical physics and chemistry, as well as more recent data-driven methods. We collaborate tightly with several groups, including UvA's Computational Science Lab, Amsterdam Center for Multiscale Modeling, and experimental Soft Matter Group.

MS project: Non-equilibrium self-assembly driven by time-dependent potentials

Continuous injection of energy into many-body systems can lead to formation of novel non-equilibrium structures which are inaccessible in equilibrium assembly. From the statistical physics...

MS project: Dynamics and transport worm-like self-propelled chains in periodic and disordered array of obstacles

The transport of filament-like self-propelled organisms such as elongated bacteria and worms through crowded heterogeneous environments is relevant to many natural and engineering processes, such...
