Keywords: computational chemistry Molecular Dynamics simulations DPD Brownian Dynamics Signal Processing and Analysis dynamic processes

The scientific research of Dr. Lugli concerns the application and implementation of computational methods for the study of complex systems and dynamic processes.

Dr. Lugli has expertise in the use of atomistic and coarse-grained Molecular Dynamics methods, in particular the Dissipative Particle Dynamics method. These methodologies have been applied for the investigation of biological systems (amyloid protein, channel proteins) and of various inactive (bubbles and drops) and active (active Brownian particles and biological cells) "soft-matter" systems.

Currently the research activity of Dr. Lugli concerns the development and use of innovative computational tools for the analysis of trajectories and signals obtained experimentally or with computational simulations. The study of the effect of static and dynamic (chemical or physical) perturbations on chemical, physical and biological systems is also of particular interest.
