Research interest

I am working on multiscale simulation techniques for heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysis, bridging all relevant length and time scales. This involves

  1. solving the electronic structure to describe the chemical reaction mechanisms and energetics,
  2. sampling the solvent induced contributions to the free energy by means of molecular dynamics,
  3. describing the macroscopic mass and energy transport on the level of hydrodynamics.

My expertise is density-functional theory and wave-function based quantum chemistry, molecular dynamics, and thermal multicomponent Lattice-Boltzmann simulations.
