"Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler"

Albert Einstein (Reader's Digest, 1977)

Our group works on the theory of simplification and some illustrative and relevant applications of the general ideas and concepts.

In more technical terms, we are dealing with various aspects of coarse-graining, bridging scales, irreversible dynamic systems, and nonequilibrium statistical thermodynamics.

Our favorite applications range from polymer dynamics in solutions and melts, complex fluids, glasses, and interfaces in multiphase systems to dissipative quantum systems and quantum field theory.
