My research focuses on heterogenous ice nucleation. The formation of ice is a ubiquitous phenomenon whose influences range from global to nanoscales, and play a crucial role in science and industry (e.g. cryopreservation, aviation, geophysics, weather & climate science). However, there is a lack of understanding of the nucleation process at the molecular scale. We use classical molecular dynamics simulations combined with enhanced sampling and/or coarse grained models of water to over come the difficulties associated with nucleation studies.
