My work covers a wide range of problems in equilibrium and non-equilibrium statistical mechanics. The major themes in my research are:
  • Phase transitions: equilibrium and non-equilibrium properties of self-assembling systems
  • Applications of statistical mechanics to complex systems in biology
  • Condensation of protein molecules-kinetic pathways to crystallization and disease
  • Self-assembly of Janus particles
  • Effects of heterogeneity (diversity) on physical and biological systems-e.g., diversity-induced resonance
Further details are given on my Research page, which also contains group photos and a list of current and former collaborators.
