Welcome to the research group of Francis Starr!
We focus on computational and theoretical approaches to problems in soft condensed matter physics and biophysics. Currently, our main efforts are on the fundamental physics of the glass transition and novel nanostructures that can be formed by using DNA to link nanoparticles; additionally, we are active in research on the behavior of supercooled water and polymeric materials. See the research summary for a more complete discussion.
I am always looking for highly motivated undergraduate and graduate students. If you are interesting in diving deep into cutting edge research, please come talk to me. Also please talk with the research group to get a student perspective.
