Jonathan Doye's Research Group

In our research we typically use computer simulation techniques to probe simple models that capture the essential physics and chemistry of the system of interest with a particular emphasis on the role played by the potential energy surface. Applications span a diverse range of fields including clusters, polymer and protein crystallization, the glass transition, biomolecules and complex networks. We collaborate closely with other members of the Oxford Centre for Soft and Biological Matter group. model proteins crystallizing
The crystallization of 2D anisotropic particles can provide a model of how anisotropy can be used to aid or frustrate crystallization.
