The PGD group uses
experiments, molecular simulation, and theory to investigate the
relationship between molecular-level interactions and the
thermodynamic behavior of substances. Within this general
subject, we focus on the theory and engineering of metastable liquids,
network-forming fluids, and glass-forming (amorphous) materials. Our research
attempts to explain macroscopic phenomena using theoretical tools
like statistical mechanics, and has applications such as the
prevention of hydrate formation in natural gas pipelines and the
preservation of biologically active materials.
