Research Activity


My project, funded by The Leverhulme Trust, was aimed at the study of the emergence of order in molecular self-organization.

Many different computational methods can be used to reach this target, and the following sub-projects can give an overview of the broad spectrum of techniques that can be employed for the study of molecular self-organization.


Ongoing and closed sub-projects:
