Research

As part of our research I study the equilibrium behavior of simple fluids in confined geometries by means of classical statistical physics and classical density functional theory. Here, the hard sphere fluid is used as a reference to which different kinds of attractive potentials are added using perturbation theory. A recent topic we investigated is the description of quasi phase transitions in biological ion channels.
