Research interests

Multi-scale modeling of Graphene-based materials: Investigate the process of curvature control on graphene by means of external electric and electromagnetic fields (EM), and the consequent curvature-dependent interaction with hydrogen, specifically focusing on the physisorption to chemisorption reversible conversion.
