Dr. Ehsan Aleem Ahmad is a post-doctoral researcher in the Computational Materials Science Group of Prof. Nicholas Harrison, which is based within the Department of Chemistry, Imperial College London.

Dr. Ahmad's current research is aimed at the use of computer simulations to aid the optimisation of materials and the discovery of new functional materials. Current areas of interest include:

  • Density Functional Theory calculations of strongly correlated materials
  • Structural and electrochemical characterization of catalysts
  • Materials for solar energy conversion 
  • Ab initio Thermodynamics
