Amish’s research strives to achieve a molecular-level understanding of solvation and transport in aqueous and polymeric systems, with applications ranging from the prediction of protein interactions to the design of advanced materials for water purification and renewable energy. To study these biological, nanoscopic, and polymeric systems, his group combines principles of statistical mechanics and liquid state theory with state-of-the-art molecular modeling and machine learning techniques. His group interfaces closely with experimentalists, both to realize their predictions and to refine their theoretical models.
