Research Summary:

My research interests are two-fold: the development of statistical mechanical approaches for complex systems, and their application to processes relevant to industry. The tools of statistical mechanics and computer simulations offer a privileged molecular perspective of increasingly complex systems. My interest in this field is to develop fundamental approaches to contribute to the understanding of experimental systems, with a special focus on chemical processes. The goal is to be able to truly predict complex phase behaviour. The types of problems I am interested in at the moment include charged systems, near-critical and supercritical separations, mixtures of polymers and liquid crystals, and solid phases of chain molecules. The impact and exposure of this work is maximised through collaborative efforts in which the aim is to promote the transfer of the theoretical developments into tools for the design and synthesis of chemical processes and products
