Statistical Thermodynamics: Theory and Applications

I am a theoretician who aims:

  • to gain a molecular scale understanding directly from the routinely performed experiments (such as solubility, sorption isotherm and physical properties' data);
  • to attain interpretive clarity via a direct connection to the first principles with a bare minimum number of assumptions;
  • to make my theory usable for industry and experiments via user-friendly, web-based apps (written by my industrial collaborator).

We work in the following research areas.

Solution phenomena

Text reads: Solution phenomena, stabilisation, aggregation, solubilisation, gelation, binding, from molecular to mesoscale, with varying degree of aggregation.

Interfacial phenomena

Text reads: Interfacial phenomena, gas sorption, sorption from solution

I strive for clarity using pen, paper, coffee and walks. I collaborate with theoreticians, experimentalists and industry.
