Research group of Frank L. H. Brown at the University of California, Santa Barbara

pinned fluctuating membrane

Research in the Brown Group is entirely theoretical/computational in nature. Our interests lie at the interface between physical chemistry and biophysics and we use a variety of tools spanning the traditional fields of statistical mechanics, hydrodynamics, elasticity theory and quantum mechanics in our research efforts. Recent work has focused on the dynamics and structure of biomembranes and the interpretation of various spectroscopy experiments (single molecule fluorescence, neutron spin echo, flicker spectroscopy, etc.).
