The main focus of my research is the simulation study of novel phase behaviour in complex fluids such as colloids and liquid mixtures. Many of the interesting phenomena associated with such soft matter systems span many decades of length and time scales. Significant progress has been made in recent years in developing computational methodologies that allow us to obtain the properties of materials from atomistic-scale simulations. However, many phenomena and properties of interest have time and length scales that are inaccessible with current computational approaches. Examples are the relaxation of long chain polymer systems, freezing in dense colloidal suspensions, and phase transitions in highly size-asymmetric liquid mixtures. My work involves developing and applying theoretical and simulation techniques which permit the bridging of the length and time-scale gaps in such systems, thus facilitating detailed study of their properties.
