Introduction

We study the universal properties of polymers interacting with various environments.

Topics of current interest are:

  • Polymers at surfaces and interfaces, conformational transitions and switchable surfaces
  • Polymers and nanoparticles interacting with lipid bilayers
  • Topological constraints, branched and cross-linked polymers
  • Polymers under non-equilibrium conditions, shear and flow
  • Polymer crystallization
  • GPU-accelerated simulation methods
