Eli Ben-Naim

Welcome! I am a theoretician and my reasearch area is statistical physics. My focus is kinetics of systems far from equilibrium with application to soft matter and complex systems. I serve as the deputy group leader of the Physics of Condensed Matter and Complex Systems Group and am an affiliate of the Center of Nonlinear Studies, both at the Theoretical Division in Los Alamos National Laboratory.

I serve as the editor of Physical Review E (Statistical, Nonlinear, and Soft Matter Physics)
