Research Interests

My research interests concern the development, analysis and implementation of model reduction (coarse-graining) techniques for high dimensional particle systems at multiple space and time scales, and so far includes studying macro-molecular and stochastic lattice systems.

I am particularly interested in the development of effective equilibrium and non-equilibrium coarse-grained models using statistical mechanics and information theory tools. Moreover, I study the development of data-driven models for molecular systems with variational and Bayesian inference methods.

I also study Markov chain Monte Carlo numerical methods and their appropriate design using coarse graining techniques, in order to accelerate microscopic simulations.
