Research interests:

My research interests lie at the interface of Crystallography/Materials Science and Computational Chemistry. I use molecular modelling methods at different levels of theory to investigate the properties of crystalline materials, especially microporous systems (zeolites, MOFs). In particular, I have addressed the following topics in ongoing and previous projects:
  • Modelling of porous materials using molecular mechanics methods and density-functional theory
  • Gas and liquid adsorption and separation in microporous materials
  • Use of crystal-chemical concepts to investigate structure-property relationships in zeolites
  • Structural stability of inorganic compounds, elastic properties, and phase transitions
