The Spakowitz lab is engaged in projects that address fundamental chemical and physical processes that underlie a range of key biological mysteries and cutting-edge materials applications. Current research in our lab focuses on four main research areas: DNA Biophysics, Protein Self Assembly, Conducting Polymers, and Fuel Cell Membranes. These broad research areas offer complementary perspectives on chemical and physical processes, and we leverage this complementarity throughout our research. Our approach draws from a diverse range of theoretical and computational methods.
