Matthew Montemore, Chemical And Biomolecular Engineering>
My research group uses computational methods to design materials for energy applications, such as catalysts, batteries, and solar cells. We are developing multiple software packages that aid in setting up calculations, analyzing data, locating relevant scientific literature, and creating/applying machine learning models. These packages are all in Python; as such, Python programmers can make significant contributions to our work.
Broadly, the outcomes will be improved software for designing materials for energy applications, and possibly new materials that can improve the efficiency of important energy processes.
