Strucutre of a hydrogel modeled by Monte Carlo theory.Theory will guide our experimental design and provide us with fundamental insight into the behavior of the materials we develop. Depending on thier interests, lab members have the opportunity to apply well-established theories of polymer behavior, such as self-consistent field theory, and develop basic analytical and computational models for their protein polymer systems that interface with our experiments to reveal the physical underpinnings of our experimental observations.
