RESEARCH INTERESTS

Theory of liquids and fluid interfaces

Our research group is working on theoretical studies of liquids and liquid mixtures, fluid interfaces, phase transitions in condensed phases and those at interfaces.

Selected topics are

  • Properties of aqueous solutions
  • Phase transitions in confined liquids
  • Bulk and inhomogeneous fluids
  • Confined fluids, water, ice, nucleation
  • Surface tension and line tension
  • Wetting phenomena 
  • Hydrophobic effect
