Theoretical condensed matter physics
BS, McGill University, Montreal, 2013
Ph.D., Harvard University, 2006
B.S., McGill University (Canada), 2001
Research Categories: Soft condensed matter simulation and theory
Research Description: Professor Charbonneau is interested in the in- and out-of-equilibrium dynamical properties of self-assembly. Important phenomena, such as colloidal microphase formation, protein aggregation, as well as glass and gel formation, are examined using approaches that combine simulation and theory.
