Research

My research concerns electron transport in nanostructures. More precisely, we have, starting in late 2014, developed a theoretical model capable of calculating scanning tunneling microscopy images (STM) from first-principles methods, which is the characterization of my doctoral thesis. We have also investigated simple chemical reactions on metallic surfaces, and calculated these from a developed theory.

My main interest is numerical simulations, primarily using Python and Mathematica. This is consistent throughout my last year's work in theoretical physics.
