Polymers and Polyelectrolytes

Polymers and Polyelectrolytes

Research Interests 

  • Simulation (MC, MD, DPD) of macromolecular systems.
  • Structure of polyelectrolytes in solution and at interfaces.
  • Morphology of block-copolymer brushes and organization of nano-particles.
  • Behavior of tethered chains.
