Research Interests

Trained as physicist, passionate about science. My current research is focused on water and ice in the atmosphere and in the context of cloud micro-physics and aerosol-cloud interactions. I mostly use theory and simulations to study molecular processes, e.g. molecular dynamics simulations to investigate the molecular structure and dynamics of liquid water, water at interfaces and in solutions and the physics of ice surfaces, or continuum simulations aiming to deepen our understanding of cloud droplet evolution.

Impressions of past and ongoing projects:


Molecular dynamics simulation of ice crystal growth:
adsorption and bulk accommodation kinetics of vapor phase molecules on ice surfaces
J. Phys. Chem. A (2020)



Aerosol exposure measurements:
exposure to ultra-fine particulate matter in traffic on bicycle commutes through Stockholm
M.Sc. project of Y. Li in progress



Molecular dynamics simulation of freezing salt solution: growing ice expels ions in freezing salt solution
Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys. (2020)




Molecular dynamics simulations of water at interfaces:
depositional ice nucleation on silver iodide (graphic) and inhibition of nucleation on barium fluoride
Sci. Rep. (2013)
