I am a postdoc between the Yusuf Hamied Department of Chemistry at the University of Cambridge the Department of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London working with Angelos Michaelides and Erich A. Müller. While my research focuses on the exploitation of machine learning to accurately mimic the atomic interactions of interfacial systems, I am also generally interested in various other fields ranging from fundamentals such as solid state physics and quantum chemistry to application-oriented research in the field of membranes and environmental engineering.
