I work in the soft condensed matter field with focus on colloidal and polymer-based systems. I use theoretical (mean field) and numerical (Monte Carlo and Molecular Dynamics) approaches to investigate the collective behaviors of (appropriately developed models of) soft-matter systems. My broad-range goal is to design of units with heterogeneously patterned surfaces in order to steer the self-assembly of materials with well-defined architectures and tunable properties.
