The Hendon Materials Simulation group sits at the interface between inorganic materials chemistry and physical chemistry. We develop models of chemical systems and use computation to provide numerical insights into reaction mechanisms, electron and hold conduction, phonons, and defect formation in complex solids.  We are highly collaborative and work with many experimental groups both within UO and beyond. 

Our group accepts students with either a physical or synthetic chemistry background.
