Professor Hall's research involves theory and simulation of polymeric materials. She applies statistical mechanical theory and molecular dynamics (MD) simulations to investigate structural, thermodynamic, and dynamic phenomena in soft materials. Of particular interest are polymeric systems containing ions or nanoparticles in which the interactions and structure on the monomer to polymer radius of gyration scales are of great importance in determining the overall macroscopic behavior of the material. 

Professor Hall held the H.C. 'Slip' Slider Professorship for six years, and her research activities have been supported by an NSF CAREER Award (2015).

Professor Hall's interactive molecular dynamics simulation, complete with a 3D monitor and force-feedback joystick, has been experienced by hundreds of young people. The setup lets people physically feel how monomers and polymers move.
