Computational Materials Research Group
Welcome to the Computational Materials Research Group in the School of Chemistry @ the University of Birmingham!

The overarching theme of our research is in silico design of functional materials, including biomaterials. The study of soft matter is central to this research theme.

Our current research is focused on designing programmed self-assembly of a range of building blocks, from molecular to microscale, into functional architectures. We are particularly interested in designing novel porous, responsive and viscoelastic materials.

To this end our research develops, adapts, and applies computational methods, largely underpinned by the theory of statistical mechanics and energy landscape framework, to study systems of interest in close connection with contemporary experimental research.

Our research is interdisciplinary in nature and maintains active collaboration with a number of research groups in Europe and North America.
