Research:

Dr. Boerio-Goates specializes in physical chemistry, particularly in thermodynamics.

Thermodynamics tells scientists that spontaneous processes are ones that bring matter from a state of high chemical potential to a state of lower potential. Thermodynamic also states that there are two tendencies driving spontaneous processes: systems desire to reach a low overall energy, but they also wish to increase their entropy. Dr. Boerio-Goates's principal research projects aim to understand how these two tendencies stabilize one phase of matter over another.
