Peter Vanya MPhil

Peter Vanya, MPhil

PhD student

Office Phone: 074 037 505 20


BSc in theoretical physics, Imperial College

MPhil in scientific computing, Cambridge (focus on condensed matter)

Research Interests

PhD funded jointly by EPSRC and Johnson Matthey with the aim of understanding interactions in fuel cells.

My focus is on multiscale modelling of ionomer-catalyst interactions in fuel cells. I use quantum chemical calculations (DFT) to understand the properties of platinum and adsorption of water.
