Welcome to Haji-Akbari’s Computational Soft Matter Group at Yale University Department of Chemical & Environmental Engineering. We are broadly interested in the application of the modern theoretical and computational tools rooted in thermodynamics and statistical mechanics to study the thermodynamics and kinetics of phase transitions in soft matter systems. Our particular focus is on crystallization and aggregation in colloidal, aqueous and biological systems. Examples include the ice formation in the atmosphere, desalination nanotechnology, colloidal self-assembly and protein folding and aggregation.
