The series of images at the very top of this page represents two things:

1. The Challenge. Since properties of molecules and mechanisms operating on a molecular scale define the bulk properties of materials, how can we use these properties to create better materials for technological applications?

2. The Solution. In my work, I apply a multiscale computer modelling approach to study materials, such as liquid crystals, polyelectrolytes, biodegradable polymers, pharmaceutical powders, composite and hybrid materials. The idea is to develop a set of interconnected accurate theoretical models which capture the essential behaviour of these materials at different length and time scales:

This roughly translates into

with Mathematics being the glue that holds everything together.
