I am a Research Fellow in Computational Chemistry. I use a variety of state-of-the-art computational methods to study:

- Structural, energetic and electronic properties of metal oxide catalysts

- Structure and reactivity of metallic nanoparticles

- Structure, energetics and reactivity of cation-doped siliceous frameworks

  • CH0002: Thermodynamics, Kinetics and Equilibria
  • CH2301: Training in Research Methods
  • CH2325: BSc Research Project
  • CH2401: MChem Research Project
  • CH3206: Key Skills for Chemists
  • CH3407: Advanced Materials

I am interested in supervising PhD students in the areas of:

  • Development and application of novel QM/MM methodology
  • Investigation of material properties of metal oxides and porous silicates
  • Application of these materials towards heterogeneous catalysis, such as MTH
  • Simulation of the structure and spectra for precious-metal nanoparticles
  • Reactivity of nanoparticles as a function of their composition
  • Investigation of the interaction between nanoparticles and supports, and the role of this interface in catalysis
