Research Interest

​Modeling of self-assembly of polymeric systems, with particular interest in the interplay between thermodynamic and kinetic effects. I study the hierarchical self-assembly of diblock copolymers in solution, as well as grafted nanoparticles in selective solvents. I have interests in coarse graining methodologies able to model experimentally relevant length and time scales (at meso-scale).
