My research is focused on theoretical heterogeneous catalysis combining Density Functional Theory (DFT) with microkinetic modeling. In this project I will develop and implement a multi-scale theoretical framework for studying catalytic reactions on nanoparticles where the conventional mean-field approximation is challenged. The research is furthermore focused on unraveling the detailed mechanisms and kinetics of catalytic reactions on nanoparticles during catalytic reactions. This information has multiple practical applications, where one example is improving automotive exhaust after-treatment by catalyst design.

Keywords: Micro-kinetic modeling, Supported Particles, Nano catalysis, Density Functional Theory.

I obtained my MSc in Engineering (Physics and Nanotechnology) from the Technical University of Denmark(DTU) in 2015.
