In this topical group we discuss a broad area of research including biological systems and materials. We perform atomistic simulations at two levels, classical as well as quantum-mechanical. Our areas of interests are:

  • Biological systems
  • Pure/bio-materials
  • Dielectrics/ionic liquids
  • Force fields


The meeting takes place biweekly on Tuesday at 10:30, if not indicated differently.
