Master´s Projects

Our Group offers Master´s thesis projects in the following areas:

Roberto Cerbino
Master’s projects are based on a primarily experimental activity in the field of soft matter physics and biophysics, and may include: preparation/optimization of samples; design, realization, testing of experimental setups; planning, execution and optimization of scientific experiments; collection and analysis of scientific data; development of physical models; implementation of numerical calculations/simulations; collaborative research with academic/industrial national and international research partners; writing of reports/articles; presentation of results during periodic meetings, workshops and conferences.

Christoph Dellago
Using advanced computational methods of statistical mechanics and machine learning, master projects in our group aim at understanding the microscopic behavior of complex ordered and disordered materials. Current research topics for master projects include stochastic thermodynamics, nanoscale materials, active matter, interfaces, phase transitions and self-assembly in soft matter. Projects typically require some code development and the utilization of high performance computers to carry out large-scale simulations.

Sofia Kantorovich
Topics of current interest are the dynamics of magnetic soft matter. The main focus of the research group is to employ computer simulations in order to develop smart and soft magnetic materials such as gels, fluids, colloids with an isometric shapes, magnetic elastomers and functional surfaces.

Christos Likos
Master’s projects are related to computational and theoretical investigations of the properties of complex fluids and biology-inspired matter. Topics are regularly collaborative with experimental partners. Emphasis is put on self-assembly, structural arrest, activity, confinement and externally controlled effective interactions.
