Personal profile

Profile

I am head of the theory group in the Center for Individual Nanoparticle Functionality. My main research interests are

  • Shape and functionality of nanoparticles: What determines the details of a nanoparticles shape, and how does this influence its catalytical properties.
  • Hot-electron assisted surface reactivity: Is it possible to use a nanostructured device to generate hot electrons (electrons with an energy of a few electron volts) and use them to trigger chemical reactions, which would otherwise only occur at higher temperature (if at all)?
  • Large-scale molecular dynamics simulations of the mechanical properties of nanocrystalline metals and metallic glasses.

Other information

Teaching and education:

  • Programme coordinator (kandidatstudieleder) for the Master programme in Physics and Nanotechnology.
  • Responsible or co-responsible for the following courses: 10004 Physical chemistry, Thermodynamics and Materials (1999-2004); 10301 Advanced Nanoscale Materials Physics (2004-2005); 10034 Thermodynamics and Statistical Physics (2005-present); 10303 Condensed Matter Physics and Nanoscale Materials Physics (2007-present).
  • Thesis advisor or co-advisor for five B.Sc. students and four M.Sc. students. 
  • Advisor or co-advisor for six Ph.D. students (bold indicates main advisor): Jesper Christiansen (2000-03), Gregers Kaat (2005-07), Søren Lund Frederiksen (2000-03), Anca Paduraru (2005-08), Jeppe Gavnholt (2006-09) and Thomas Olsen (2007-10).
