Welcome to the Chapman Research Group of Thermodynamic Modeling and Molecular Theory Development

In Chapman’s research group, we develop statistical mechanics based molecular theories to study structure-property relations in complex fluids. We also refer to molecular simulation, NMR and other experimental techniques to validate our models.

Our current interests include polymer solutions, blends, brushes and composites, associating fluids, confined fluids, asphaltenes and electrolytes.
