Alvaro Posada Borbon

Doctoral Student at Chalmers, Physics, Chemical Physics

I am working on computational heterogenous catalysis. Currently, I'm modelling the reaction of carbon dioxide over metal and metal-oxide surfaces. We intend to understand deactivation of copper-based catalysts and the reaction mechanisms that allow for the generation of added-value chemicals on Indium based oxides. My research is done by means of DFT calculations.
