Field of Interest:

I am interested in MD simulations of electrokinetic phenomena, especially colloidal electrophoresis. I study the elecphoretic behavior of large colloids (\kappa R \gg 1) via a combination of implicit-ions simulations and the standard electrokinetic model of O'Brien and White. I am also working on the electrophoretic mobility of a small polyelectrolyte-grafted colloid via explicit-ions simulations in a fluid modeled by the lattice-Boltzmann algorithm.
