Our research focuses on the relation between the molecular constitution of a system and its thermodynamic and rheological properties, with a focus on biological systems. Studies are performed with atomistic and coarse-grained models, using simulation methods ranging from molecular dynamics simulation and Monte Carlo simulations to Brownian Dynamics, responsive particle dynamics, etc. We study rheological properties per se, as well as processes whose dynamics are fully determined by the rheological properties of the system.
