Research interests

My general research interests are in the field of molecular simulation, the study of gas-solid interactions and porous solids.

Molecular simulation is currently a robust technique that allows the understanding of processes at the molecular scale. I use Monte Carlo simulation methods combined with experimental work to understand the interaction of solids and fluids as well as to develop new methods for the simulation of carbon porous materials. Porous solids and their interaction with fluids is relevant to chemical engineers because of the large number of industrial applications such as catalysis, adsorption and gas/energy storage.

I am interested in:

  • fundamental study of adsorption process in porous solids.
  • characterization of porous materials by using adsorption means and molecular simulation techniques
  • development of novel methods to simulate porous carbon materials
  • development of new Monte Carlo methods to study the solid-fluid interaction
