My aim is to link computer-assisted modelling to experimental observables.
I use and develop a variety of computational techniques to elucidate the properties of materials and their interfaces, ranging from minerals to soft matter.
I provide molecular-level insights for systems ranging from polymers to minerals. I focus on studying the dynamics within the materials, state transitions, as well as their properties and interfaces.
The applications of my research are numerous, such as abiogenetic origins of life, enhanced oil recovery, crystal formation and growth prevention, modifications of layered materials for desired functionality, soil and water pollution and remediation, separation of polymeric matrices, and software development.
