Personal profile

Research interests

We, as a research team, are involved in various projects on molecular dynamics simulations of ionic liquids and deep eutectic solvents to explore the underlying interactions of/within these solvents, and to correlate these interactions to their thermophysical and chemical properties. In addition, we also performs molecular/quantum simulations on biomolecules to understand and enhance their structural stability. The buzz words for our works are 

  • Molecular dynamics simulations
  • Ionic liquids, Deep eutectic solvents
  • Adsorption over nanomaterials
  • Protein aggregation and bio-molecular stability
  • Aerosol Chemistry
