Short presentation

Member of Condensed Matter Theory group (CMT) and Uppsala University UniMolecular Electronics Center (U3MEC). Research interests: surface physics, surface chemistry and electron transport properties of nanosystems. I use computer simulations to study surface structure, understanding molecular adsorption and intermolecular interactions. The major application area considered is molecular electronics. I am an expert in modeling of electron transport in metal-molecule-metal systems.

Keywords: infoglue cms research adsorption batteries molecular electronics ab initio simulations density functional theory surfaces
