We are currently concentrating on problems related to lipid membranes and proteins, self-assembly processes, multiscale modeling of biological systems, pattern formation in reaction-diffusion systems, and computational methods.
We are a computational & theoretical group, but most of our projects are done in collaboration with experimental groups.
Instead of maintaining web pages of each of the projects, we have put research nuggets with pictures, videos and brief explanations to our flickr site. Pictures and videos at flickr are downloadable, but we kindly ask you to cite them appropriately if you use them.
