Uline Research Group
|The Uline Research Group works to understand how complex interactions at interfaces couple to create phenomena observed in chemical and biological systems. We currently focus on molecular modeling of biological interfaces, specifically phase transitions and binding in lipid bilayers and surfactant-driven nematic ordering transitions in liquid-crystal thin films. Other interests include bubble and droplet nucleation theory, molecular dynamics simulations in the isothermal-isobaric ensemble, and effects of multivalent ions on the charge regulation in tethered polyelectrolytes.
