Research

We focus on atomistic modelling of materials which can be broadly categorized into two subject areas: nanobiotechnology and amorphous solids. In the first area, the primary goal is to computationally design and explore nano-architectures that allow for new physical approaches to probe biological molecules. One of the main applications that motivates our studies is the possibility to use nanopores for sequencing DNA or studying proteins. - Regarding the second area, we are carrying out research on a challenging class of non-crystalline materials known as amorphous solids or glasses. Among other aspects, we are interested in how the thermal conductivity of such systems is affected if one introduces a long-range order ("phononic glasses") and how the diffusivity of hydrogen can be controlled by synthesizing specific compositions in the amorphous phase.
