I develop and apply computational tools to investigate the electrochemical double layer at an atomistic level. These tools are used to model electrocatalytic reactions at metal surfaces, solvation of charged molecules and surfaces, and properties of the interface such as the differential capacitance. The goal of my work is to apply these atomistic tools to address fundamental challenges in corrosion, electrocatalysis and electrodeposition.

If you are a postdoctoral candidate, we have openings that are immediately available to all US Citizens through the NRC Research Associateship Program. Our current NRC postings include:

Computational Electrochemistry and Dielectric Spectroscopy

Electrochemical Surface Science of Metal-Electrolyte Interfaces: Theory and Experiment

If you are interested or have any questions, please email me.
