Fields of Scholarship
  • Computational Materials Chemistry, especially structure/property relationships of functional materials
  • Computer-aided design of catalysts for sustainable energy processes, including CO2 reduction and biomass conversion to fuel
  • Geochemical processes, including the predictive modelling of the mineral-water interface
  • Modelling nucleation and dissolution mechanisms in widely investigated minerals, including calcite and silicates.
  • Computational biomaterials, including the development of accurate models for bioactive glasses and the collagen/mineral interface to provide insight into the composite bone tissue and implant materials.
  • Energy Materials, e.g. a concerted experimental and computational approach to develop new sulfide catalysts for CO2 activation and conversion to chemicals, inspired by Origin of Life theories
  • Novel materials for photo-catalytis for sustainable energy generation
