Personal profile

Research interests

My research is dedicated to the application of computational modeling to currently outstanding problems in materials science, using both classical and quantum mechanical descriptions of the microscopic atomistic behavior. My goal is to apply the computational tools to address environmental-challenges, such as chemical reactions leading ozone depletion, heterogenous catalytic processes for fuel cell technology and synthetic fuel.
