My research in general is to simulate physical and chemical processes on surfaces and at interfaces using first-principles methods. The research topics include electrochemistry, catalysis and aqueous chemistry, and at present I am particularly interested in modelling processes involved in energy conversion and storage. The main computational tool I use is the one that I have developed with others in the last few years. The state-of-the-art method merges quantum mechanical and statistical mechanical techniques at a fundamental molecular level for computation of free energies of electron/proton transfer.
