In this talk, I will discuss some recent efforts to develop a set of theoretical and simulation tools to study molecular systems driven away from equilibrium. This work leverages recent advancements in the study of large deviations and control theory, as well as the burgeoning area of stochastic thermodynamics. Generalizations of the fluctuation-dissipation theorem, and variational statements of stability for nonequilibrium systems, will be demonstrated. Specific questions concerning electrokinetic phenomena in ionic solutions confined to nanoscale dimensions and the self assembly of active matter will be addressed.
