Kofke Research Group, taken at the 2018Graduate Research Symposium

  • Molecular and engineering thermodynamics
  • Calculation of free energy and phase equilibria by molecular simulation
  • Applications to phase behavior in solids and analysis of crystal stability
  • Calculation of cluster integrals, with application to modeling of dense gases and supercritical fluids
  • Integration of cluster-based methods with ab initio computational chemistry
  • Development and application of object-oriented software for molecular modeling
