Faculty Research Groups
The Nonlinear Dynamics Group covers oscillatory chemical reactions, spatial pattern formation, dynamical systems and neurobiology.
Research in the Foxman Laboratory includes: x-ray structure determination; coordination polymers; chemical, physical, and crystallographic studies of solid-state reactions; and using computer techniques to develop an automatic solution of crystal structures.
The Herzfeld Group is primarily interested in force fields for efficiently simulating chemical reactions in complex media, control of water by gas vesicle proteins for buoyance in unicellular organisms, and active ion transport by membrane proteins for energy storage and homeostasis.
The Pochapsky Lab is directed towards an understanding of non-covalent interactions in chemical and biochemical systems.
