Research interests

  1. Structural relaxation and arrest (glass transition, gelation, jamming) in molecular liquids and soft matter.

  2. Glass forming ability, and mechanical behavior of amorphous solids under deformation, in relation to metallic glasses.

  3. Rheology of glassy soft matter and molecular liquids.

  4. Phase behavior, self assembly, nucleation and growth in network forming liquids (specifically silicon and water), and colloidal / nanoparticle suspensions.

  5. Statistical mechanics of biomolecular systems.
