Research Summary:

The core of my research is dedicated to addressing key processes in catalysis, energy storage, and environmentally-hazardous chemical reactions, combining classical and quantum numerical simulations, as characterization tools. My goal is to understand the catalytic processes of materials, in particular at the nano-size regime. I am interested in ozone depletion (catalytic processes on ice systems in the mid and upper atmosphere), fuel cell chemistry and hydrogen storage.
