The broad aim of my research is the design and optimisation of graphene-based materials for aqueous separation processes, such as desalination or decontamination. To achieve this aim, I employ a variety of computer modelling techniques, including quantum mechanics, molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo methods, working in parallel with experimental collaborators.
