Our current research is focused on the understanding of the dynamics of non-equilibrium thermodynamic state leading to equilibrium state. We use various analytical and computational tools of statistical mechanics such as dynamical density functional theory, phase field theory Monte Carlo, and MD simulations. In particular, our group is interested in confined binary alloys and liquid crystals including the properties of their interfaces. Moreover, the efforts would be made to formulate various approaches to develop models requiring least computational budget.
