We are looking for a motivated UG student from the UK university to join our group with the NERC funded placement.
Bringing Atomic-level insights to Caesium Decontamination by Clay Minerals
The student will investigate the adsorption of Cs-137 onto montmorillonite and vermiculite clays at atomic-level resolution. They will use molecular dynamics (MD) simulations, a theoretical method, providing atomistic-level details to macroscopic observations. Through this work we will gain a mechanistic understanding of the Cs-clay adsorption process and we will help inform the choice of natural clay between the local naturally available ones, on the nuclear waste disposal sites.
