Research Interests

  • Modeling of surface processes related to chemistry and materials.
  • Catalytic surface reaction: multiscale modeling of spatial-temporal patterns, connecting atomistic simulations of reaction and continuous description of diffusion; fluctuations and bifurcations of chemical reactions on nanoscale particles.
  • Metal thin films: restructuring and diffusion of nanostrustures in epitaxal films.
  • Etching of semiconductor surfaces.
