Curriculum Vitae

Research:

Thermodynamics tells us that spontaneous processes are ones that take matter from a state of high chemical potential to a lower one. Thermodynamics also tells us that there are two tendencies that drive spontaneous processes: systems want to go to the lowest overall energy, but they also want to increase their entropy. My principal research projects aim to increase our understanding of how these two factors play out, on a molecular level, in stabilizing one phase of matter over another. To read more click here.
