Research - Condensed Matter Theory
Dr. Ivan Saika-Voivod uses computer simulation to study thermodynamics and dynamics of supercooled liquids, focussing on aspects of crystal nucleation and the glass transition. Systems studied include silica, attractive colloids, Lennard-Jones liquid and nanoclusters.
