Our simulation capability includes numerical, Monte-Carlo and molecular-dynamics methods, enabling new applications within cross-College collaborations. MRI staff are members of the Thomas Young Centre, an interdisciplinary community of London research groups working to address challenges of society and industry through materials modelling and the theory and simulation of materials.
