Interfacial Dynamics in Radioactive Environments and Materials (IDREAM)

Particle Interactions

Quantify the chemical and physical phenomena leading to hierarchical microstructures of aggregates and other response dynamics that couple across scales to create emergent properties of heterogeneous systems.

  • What are the unique roles of interfacial chemistry and structure in dictating particle-particle and particle-solvent interactions in complex chemical environments?
  • How do particle interactions couple to hydrodynamics to create the aggregate microstructure?

Research Goals



Master molecular–to–mesoscale chemical and physical phenomena at interfaces in complex environments characterized by extremes in alkalinity and low-water activity, and driven far from equilibrium by ionizing radiation.
