Athanassios Z. Panagiotopoulos
Susan Dod Brown Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering
Ph.D. 1986, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Prof. Panagiotopoulos focuses on development of theoretical and computer simulation techniques for the study of properties of fluids and materials. Emphasis is on molecular-based models that explicitly represent the main interactions among microscopic constituents of a system. These models can be used to predict the behavior of materials at conditions inaccessible to experiment and to gain a fundamental understanding of the microscopic basis for the observed properties.
