Dr. Sara Jabbari-Farouji (Principal Investigator)

Sara
I am interested in various problems in the domain of soft matter physics. My aim is understand the link between the underlying structure of soft materials and their dynamics and mechanical properties by employing coarse-grained models. In my research, I combine computer simulations with statistical physics theory to a variety of soft matter problems related to experiments.
