Project Description

I combine first-principles based modeling with classic thermodynamic and kinetic theories to study physics and chemistry at gas-solid, liquid-solid and solid-solid interfaces. My goal is to mechanistically understand the interface processes, to develop interface methodology and ultimately to rationally design interface materials with desired properties.
Topics I am particularly interested in, but not limited to, are:

  1. Ultrathin (hydr)oxide film growth and electrocatalysis
  2. Stability and poisoning of heterogeneous catalysts and electrocatalysts
  3. Electrified double layer simulation
  4. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy simulation
  5. Hydrogen evolution and oxidation reactions, oxygen reduction and evolution reactions, CO oxidation and water gas shift reactions
