ESR Project:

I am working on modelling of nanostructured phase-separated polymeric materials (i.e. Polyurethanes) at every stage of their processing. I will use several methods covering different length and time scales, from quantum mechanics calculations to molecular dynamics and coarse grained models. A particular attention will be devoted in the modeling of chemical reactions in order to study phenomena as self-assembling and network formation. The final goal is to understand how mechanical and optical properties of nano/microstructured polymeric materials depend upon processing parameters.

Potential Applications:

A deep understanding of the underlying mechanisms that rule the properties of nano/micro structured polymeric materials will be a powerful tool to realize tailoring of their properties and to optimize all the industrial steps involved in production and processing.
