Itai Panas

Full Professor at Chalmers, Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Energy and Material, Environmental Inorganic Chemistry 2

Dr. Itai Panas is Professor in Theoretical Chemistry at the Division for Chemical and Biological Engineering.In his research he employs and develops quantum chemical conceptual tools to study a wide variety of systems in the fields of heterogeneous catalysis, and electro-catalysis on nano-particles as well as corrosion, cement chemistry, molecular crystals and superconductors. He has contributed efficient accurate formulations of intermolecular interactions, and strategies to merge density functional theory with wave function based quantum chemistry. Itai is currently main supervisor for three PhD students.Itai was Swedish Research Council Senior Researcher during 1998-2004.
