The Gubbins Research Group aims to understand, at the molecular level, the behavior of nano-dimensional fluids and solids. The underlying theme of our work is to develop molecular models that accurately describe the materials and systems of interest. These models are then used in molecular simulations and theories to interpret experimental results, and to predict behavior that is not accessible to experiment. Experimental studies complement the molecular simulation work, and comparison of the two frequently leads to important new insights.
