Research Interests

  • structure and speciation in fluids and melts at high pressures (P) and temperatures (T), structure-property relations (e.g. diffusion, viscosity, electrical and thermal conductivity)
  • phase stability, structure, vibrational and elastic properties of silicates and other crystalline phases as function of P and T
  • structure and diffusion in mineral grain boundaries and partially molten rocks, melting and crystallization processes
  • mechanisms of crystal deformation and structural phase transitions
  • development of predictive molecular simulation methods and their application to mineralogy and geochemistry
  • complementary use of experiments and molecular modeling techniques in (geo)materials research
