Description Nature uses self-assembly to build fascinating supramolecular materials, such as microtubules and protein filaments, which can self-heal, reconfigure, adapt or dynamically respond to specific stimuli. Understanding how to design artificial supramolecular materials that possess bioinspired properties via similar self-assembly principles would be a breakthrough for many applications, but it is non-trivial.
This thesis is connected to the ERC Consolidator grant project "DYNAPOL", which aims at learning how to design new types of artificial materials with bio-inspired dynamic properties via multiscale molecular models, advanced computational simulation, and machine learning approaches.
