Research Interests

Technology and engineering must be based on pure science;

the time for empirical invention is long past

Kieth J. Laidler, "To Light Such A Candle" Oxford University Press, 1998

The primary research interests in the Kelty group focus on modeling and simulation of solid state surfaces and interfacial phenomena.  This includes application areas such as catalysis, polymer properties and dynamics, biological materials including lipids, membrane proteins and nucleic acids. 

Some current research areas include:
