Dr Marietjie Ungerer

Postdoctoral Research Associate (with Dr Nelson Dzade)


In the last three years as part of PostDoctoral research, we investigated the interaction of both water and sulphur dioxide on various platinum surfaces as part of the hybrid sulphur cycle for hydrogen production. I obtained my Ph.D. in June 2018 on the molecular modelling of species pertaining to the solvent extraction of tantalum penta-fluorides. We modelled not only various Ta species in both a water and acid environment, but also to simulated these species and interactions at a water-organic phase interface.
I have hands on skills and experience in first principles and/or molecular dynamics simulations, which can be seen in the various oral presentations and papers published during my PhD and PostDoc studies. I also have experience of working collaboratively in a research environment which can be seen from my studies at both the North-West University and Cardiff University.
