Short presentation

Research Interests: studying nano-bio systems as well as metal hydrides using methods from the field of computational materials science. In particular, focus either on the nanomaterial (such as in DNA-wrapped nanotubes) or on the biomolecule (such as in nanopore-based DNA sequencing). Investigating metal hydrides both for fundamental interests (pressure-induced metallization and superconductivity) as well as for applications (hydrogen storage).
