at the intersection of computation, machine learning, and nanochemistry!

Welcome to the Violi Lab!

We are dedicated to interdisciplinary research at the forefront of nanoscience, where we use molecular simulations and machine learning. Our two-pronged mission is to perform basic research while addressing real-world challenges for maximum societal impact.

Our recent work includes Geometric Deep Learning for accelerating molecular dynamics simulations of nonthermal plasma, ensemble methods for multitask feature selection (BoUTS and JOPLEn), and predicting interactions between proteins and nanoparticles. Check out our news tab for more info!

Join us! Make an impact by shaping the future of scientific discovery, nanomaterial design, human health, and environmental stewardship.
