HIMS performs renowned research in the field of molecular simulations and multiscale modelling. Within this theme advanced (multi-scale) computational methods are developed and applied to gain novel understanding of complex chemical, physical and biological processes.
In particular, the theme focuses on
The knowledge gained benefits the design of next-generation materials and processes of technological and industrial importance. Keywords include rare events, first-principles, complexity, multi-scale, large-scale computing and data analysis.
Researchers in this theme collaborate intensively with corresponding groups at VU Amsterdam in the Amsterdam Centre for Multi-Scale Modelling (ACMM). ACMM covers expertise ranging from quantum-mechanical modelling to large scale simulation of (bio)systems.
