About Peter A. Monson

Research Interests:
Our research is concerned with the application of molecular theory to problems at the forefront of Chemical Engineering technology. The goal is to build a link between microscopic interactions and the macroscopic behavior, as well as to provide physical insights that can improve the theoretical basis of mesoscopic and macroscopic models. Our research interests are directed towards areas that afford an opportunity for important fundamental research that has a close connection with practical applications. Our work is currently focused on
thermodynamics and dynamics of fluids confined in porous materials
self-assembly of ordered nanoporous materials.
We use several techniques from statistical mechanics including Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics computer simulation as well as classical density functional theory guided by careful application of thermodynamic principles.
