The Yaliraki group is interested in the emergent properties of self-assembling systems in confined environments. Examples from biology include the mechanisms of fibril and viral capsid formations. Another area of interest is the electronic properties of molecular scale junctions. A unifying theme of our work is how geometry and topology affect the dynamics of systems at different scales. Emphasis is on coarse-graining and system reduction approaches.
