Research Interests

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.

More detailed descriptions of my earlier research interests (circa 2000) can be found below. For more up-to-date information, see also a list of potential PhD projects and my departmental home page.
