Kevin is currently a postdoc at UCSB in the Fredrickson and Shell groups, leading implementation of multiscale simulation tools for studying large-scale self-assembly of soft materials. Previously, Kevin earned his Ph.D. from Caltech under the supervision of Zhen-Gang Wang, building theories to model the coacervation of oppositely charged polyelctrolytes with the support of an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. During his free time Kevin is interested in exploring how science interfaces with society, and previously served on the board of a student science policy group at Caltech.
I am broadly interested in how to develop faithful and useful molecular models in easy, robust, and facile ways. With better models, we can leverage computers to broadly study physical driving forces and explore new approaches to self-assembly.
