Research | Current
My current research focuses on the theoretical and computational studies to understand the way that soft matters interact with each other, and self-assemble into coherent phases and high-order structures. In this research, large-scale molecular dynamics (MD) simulations are performed to study the dynamics of interacting Janus nanoparticles in fluids.
