Multiscale modelling of nanostructured soft materials

Supervisor: Dr. Colin Denniston

Project Description (Abstract):

Our group has a number of projects available for students interested in computational physics.  Our research focuses on modelling particles and dynamic processes in complex fluids.  We study systems involving micro- and nano-scale objects, soft colloids or polymers for instance, in a complex fluid such as a liquid crystal (picture below).  An important aspect of our work is the development of models and multi-scale computer simulation techniques to investigate these systems.  Projects can include performing and analyzing simulations of specific systems or developing algorithms to study these systems.
