    Research Interests:

    • Theoretical materials chemistry, coarse-graining and multiscale simulations, charge transport, data-driven and machine learning approaches to soft materials.

    The Jackson Lab integrates quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, and machine learning to understand the multiscale structure and electronic properties of soft materials. We are focused on the design of electronic properties in soft materials, including conductive, optical, bioelectronic, electrostatic and degradation behavior.
