The Fredrickson group has pioneered a new class of computer simulation techniques based on molecularly-informed statistical field theories. Such field-theoretic simulations enable the investigation of classical soft material and quantum many-body systems at an unprecedented range of length and timescales.
Assistant Professor Mechanical Engineering UC Santa Barbara
Our research focuses on the intersection of design, mechanics, and materials. We develop novel mechanisms and apply non-traditional materials to solve challenging problems in robotics, medicine, and biomechanics.
I am broadly interested in the functional particles that are influenced by and adapt to the complex environment they are in, and how an understanding of these systems enable us to design functional soft materials.
