The Uline research group is working toward the fundamental understanding of how the complex interactions at interfaces couple together to give the rich phenomena observed in various chemical and biological systems. Currently, we are focused on molecular modeling of biological interfaces, in particular, phase transitions and binding in lipid bilayers and surfactant driven nematic ordering transitions in liquid-crystal thin films. Other ongoing research interests include bubble and droplet nucleation theory, molecular dynamics simulations in the isothermal-isobaric ensemble, and the effects of multivalent ions on the charge regulation in tethered polyelectrolytes.
