Research Assistant Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

Research Focus

My research uses simulation to provide molecular-level insight into the structure-property relationships of nanoscale systems.  As part of the Cummings and McCabe research groups, I use a combination of coarse-grained, atomistic, and reactive forcefields to examine: (1) the structure and tribological properties of nano confined fluids, (2) structure-conductance relationships in atomic and molecular junctions, (3) the phase behavior of polymer-grafted nanoparticles, and (4) the self-assembly of lipids and biomembranes.
