Research interests

Ab initio (using mainly density functional theory) and classical modelling of scanning-probe microscopy techniques with atomic resolution (STM and AFM); topography and dissipation in atomic force microscopy; hybrid quantum-mechanical methods in treating very large (e.g. biological) systems, chemical reactions and adsorption on surfaces; quantum-mechanical embedding; phonons calculations; manipulation of atoms and molecules using AFM/STM tips; non-equilibrium statistical mechanics; quantum transport;  theory of defects in solids; Generalised Langevin Equation; Kinetic Monte Carlo; graphene growth
