Summary

 

Summary

I’m a Research Associate in the Applied Modelling and Computation Group at Imperial College London, UK.

My research involves simulating real materials on a computer to unveil the physical phenomena that can help solving industrial problems, optimise processes and lead to new discoveries in material science.

Here are some direct applications of my research:

  • More resistant catalytic pellets can reduce costs in the production of hydrogen, ammonia and other industrial chemicals while reducing energy consumption and industrial waste.
  • A better understanding of jet drilling processes can enhance the productivity of geothermal wells and reduce the costs for renewable energy.
  • Stronger and more reliable engineered materials can help build safer and cheaper infrastructures.
