Research Interests


Our research work focuses on structure and dynamics of soft condensed matter such as room-temperature ionic liquids, electrolyte solutions, room-temperature polar & non-polar liquids and lipid-membranes. We use state-of-the-art computer simulations, including all-atom, coarse-grained and ab-initio molecular dynamics, and apply principles of various theoretical techniques to elucidate the physicochemical properties of these systems.
