Welcome to the Theoretical Polymer and Biopolymer Laboratory (TPBL).

In our laboratory, the primary interest is in elucidating fundamental processes (physical, topological, and/or chemical) which determine the behavior and performance of materials. We utilize computer simulations and statistical thermodynamic theory for problems of industrial as well as fundamental interest, focusing primarily on the behavior of polymers and biopolymers. Predicting and understanding structure-property-performance relations requires spanning over large spatial and temporal scales, for which we utilize both atomistic models and develop coarse-grained mesoscopic models.
