Professor Alfredo Alexander-Katz received the Frank E. Perkins Award for Excellence in Graduate Advising from MIT's Graduate Student Council. Congratulations Alfredo!
Our mission and vision
Our research concentrates on the dynamics and self-assembly of soft material systems. The group uses a combination of theory, computer simulations, and experimental studies. Depending on the spatio-temporal scales of interest, a variety of simulation techniques are utilized, including self-consistent field theoretic simulations, dissipative particle dynamics, molecular dynamics, and Monte Carlo methods. The group’s theoretical studies are supplemented by experiments performed in-house or through collaborations.
Shayna and Emi have been selected as MIT women of Excellence based on their leadership and service contributions at the Institute, their dedication to mentoring, and their drive to make changes to improve the student experience. Congratulations!
Karim defended his thesis “Block Copolymers Self Assembly – A Computational Approach Towards Novel Morphologies” and received his Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering. Cogratulations Dr. Gadelrab!
