About Glen Hocky

I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry at New York University. My research interests broadly involve using (and developing new) techniques from statistical mechanics and computational modeling to better understand how molecular interactions give rise to large scale collective phenomena. My research interests lie at the intersection between chemistry, physics, biology, and materials science. Prior to NYU, I was a postdoctoral fellow in the James Franck Institute at the University of Chicago and a Graduate Student in Chemical Physics at Columbia University. As a postdoc, I mainly used theory and simulation to study proteins that regulate the mechanics and dynamical features of the actin cytoskeleton. During my Ph.D., I used model glass-forming liquids to study the structural origin of dynamical arrest in supercooled liquids.
