Assistant Professor, Physical Chemistry



Our work drives at understanding and developing materials for application to current and future energy systems, including heterogeneous catalysts and photoactive materials. Simulation is vital for understanding properties and mechanisms to enable rational design of chemical systems. However, the properties that make for promising materials also render those systems difficult to study through simulation. Our research aims to develop quantum chemistry methodologies that better enable materials for energy applications to be studied and understood.
