Physical chemistry of complex systems

Group leader

Prof. dr hab. Wojciech Góźdź

Research topics

We are interested in mathematical modeling of physicochemical processes encountered in soft matter, active matter, and biological systems. We develop theories within the framework of statistical physic to describe, understand and predict the behavior, and discover new physical phenomena in studied systems. We perform molecular simulations  using methods of Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics to investigate  on a molecular scale complex physical systems. In our work we combine the knowledge from many discipline of science such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, and computer science.
