Molecular modeling in various environments
My research activities are centered around two main topics. The first one concerns the reactivity at the surface of atmospheric particles (ice, aerosols) and the second theme is connected to the formation of molecules in the interstellar medium. The thread that connects these themes is the molecular description of the fundamental processes at these particular interfaces by means of computational methods (classical Molecular Dynamics simulations (MD), Quantum Chemistry calculations…).
My research has always been supported by different programs, implying collaborations with both experimentalists and theoreticians Even if my work is essentially theoretical, it contributes to improve the detailed understanding of gas interactions with aerosol and cloud particles in the atmosphere.
