My research interest lies in the broad area of heterogeneous catalysis, surface chemistry and catalyst design utilizing a number of theoretical and experimental approaches. The project I am currently working on at SUNCAT aims to establish a fundamental understanding of the interactions between adsorbed atoms and molecular fragments on transition metal surfaces and devise models to include these interactions in catalytic trend studies. The aim is to significantly increase the accuracy in catalytic trend studies, such as to further enable novel computational catalyst design strategies.
