Elaine and Jack S. Parker Professor and Department Head
Chemical and Biological Engineering
Rensselaer Nanotechnology Center (RNC)
Dr. Garde's research interests include molecular thermodynamics and simulations of biological systems, statistical mechanics of liquids and polymers, and solvation phenomena -- especially in aqueous solutions (water structure, hydrophobic interactions). We focus on understanding and modeling the role of water structure in inducing interactions between various hydrophobic, polar, and ionic molecules which ultimately leads to many important self-assembly processes in water. For an overview, see brief descriptions of ongoing projects in my research group.
