Computational Electromagnetics & Biophysics (CEMB)

 

Computational electromagnetics (CEM), computational electrodynamics or electromagnetic modeling is the process of modeling the interaction of electromagnetic fields with physical objects and the environment.CEM is the science of designing and implementing fast and accurate Maxwell's equations solvers and is used to calculate antenna performance, electromagnetic compatibility, radar cross section and electromagnetic wave propagation when not in free space. The field of computational electromagnetics complements many branches of applied electromagnetics that often rely on experimentation. As importantly, it is an interdisciplinary field that interacts profoundly with the applied mathematics and computational sciences. A specific part of computational electromagnetics deals with electromagnetic radiation scattered and absorbed by small particles. Out interests are also to study various electromagnetic phenomena supported by isolated nano-scale metallic/plasmonic or dielectric elements.

 

Research in computational biophysics uses physical principles to understand complex biological phenomena at an atomistic level of detail.  No single approach fully characterizes the research that falls into this area as the methods we employ are often problem dependent.  Nevertheless, in many cases numerical techniques provide a platform that is used to gain insights into difficult biological problems.  Some methods that are often employed in this field are molecular dynamics simulations, electrostatic energy calculations. CEMB provides a background in both numerical simulation methods and algorithms that form the foundation of many computational approaches to biological and biophysical problems.  This is an especially exciting time for those interested in computational biophysics as the speed of today's computers often place daunting biological problems within our grasp.
