Chair
Computer simulations of soft condensed matter
Profile

Computer Simulation group of Marjolein Dijkstra

Our research interests are theory and simulations of soft condensed matter systems, e.g. sterically and charged stabilised colloidal suspensions. Examples are structure, bulk, interfacial and wetting behaviour of colloidal (nanoparticle) suspensions, crystal structure prediction, nucleation, glasses, and gels, effective interactions. Our group has strong ties with the experimentalists in the Soft Condensed Matter group and the Van ‘t Hoff Laboratory, both in the Debye Institute at Utrecht University.

Our research interests are theory and simulations of soft condensed matter systems, e.g. sterically and charged stabilised colloidal suspensions. Examples are structure, bulk, interfacial and wetting behaviour of colloidal (nanoparticle) suspensions, crystal structure prediction, nucleation, glasses, and gels, effective interactions. Our group has strong ties with the experimentalists in the Soft Condensed Matter group and the Van ‘t Hoff Laboratory, both in the Debye Institute at Utrecht University.
