* '''Dr. Maria Fyta''' von der Universität München hat den Ruf auf die Junior-Professur des SFB 716 angenommen und wird '''ab März 2012''' dem '''Institut für Computerphysik''' angehören. Maria Fyta studierte Physik an der Universität Kreta in Griechenland und promovierte dort 2005 über Energetik und mechanische Eigenschaften von nanostrukturiertem amorphem Kohlenstoff. Ab 2005 war sie wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin bei Prof. Efthimios Kaxiras in der Forschungsgruppe Computational Physics and Materials Science in Harvard, USA, wo sie schwerpunktmäßig an biophysikalischen Projekten arbeitete. 2008 wechselte sie zur Technischen Universität München, um im Forscherteam Bio Soft-matter Theory unter Leitung von Prof. Roland Netz die Optimierung von ionischen Kraftfeldern zu untersuchen. Die Einbettung in das Programm des SFB 716 erlaubt Dr. Fyta nun die Kombination ihrer beiden bisherigen Forschungsfelder Festkörperphysik und Biophysik. In ihrer wissenschaftlichen Tätigkeit wird sie sich auf '''multiskalige, atomistische und mesoskopische Simulationen zur Analyse von biomodifizierten Oberflächen und Nanoteilchen, DNA Translokationen durch kleine Poren sowie elastische und optoelektronische Eigenschaften von Kohlenstoff-Materialien''' konzentrieren. Wir heißen die neue Kollegin herzlich willkommen und wünschen ihr einen erfolgreichen Start.

We use high-performance computing on supercomputers and parallel clusters to solve complex problems in physics that would otherwise be impossible to solve via analytical methods. Our main research areas are presently to understand the physics of soft matter systems in general, with a particular emphasis on charged systems like polyelectrolytes, charged colloids, ferrofluids and ionic liquids. In addition we are interested in various biophysical problems. A second focus of our research are geometry, flow and transport phenomena in porous media and applications of fractional calculus in physics. Our methods are not only computer simulations, but we also apply numerical methods statistical physics approaches like stochastic processes, density functional methods, and other approaches. The simulations are performed on parallel computers with help of the simulation package ESPResSo, and we continue to develop algorithms for long range interactions.
