Our research group, headed by Prof. Gaurav Arya, uses computational methods to provide fundamental, molecular-level understanding of diverse range of biological and material systems, with the aim of discovering new phenomena and developing new materials and technologies. The methods we use or develop are largely based on statistical mechanics, molecular modeling and simulations, stochastic dynamics, coarse-graining, bioinformatics, machine learning, and polymer/colloidal physics. Our current research interests fall within four main themes:
- Genome organization and regulation
- Polymer-nanoparticle composites
- DNA nanotechnology
