Yingling's interests include multiscale molecular modeling and computer simulations of soft materials: polymers, biomolecules, nanoparticles, organic-inorganic composites; design and properties of nanomaterials; inorganic-organic interfaces and surfaces; biomolecular 3D structure prediction; effect of solvents and additives on materials properties; interactions between nanoparticles and bio and polymeric materials.
Soft materials include a wide range of materials, such as polymers, colloids, organic composites, biological materials, whose properties arise from the complex interplay between processes occurring over multiple scales. Yingling's research interests are focused on the development of advanced computational models and novel algorithms for multiscale molecular modeling of various processes in composite, soft and biological materials. Specifically, Yingling group aims to provide a fundamental understanding of the structure-property relations of a variety of soft materials systems that are formed through the process of self-assembly.
