I'm presently a stay-at-home dad. Generally, I am a researcher active at the interface between physical chemistry, materials science, and engineering. My expertise lies in combining theory, computation, and visualization to help improve our understanding of physicochemical processes on an atomic scale (e.g., guest diffusion and intercalation in host materials) and to help improve predictions of scientifically and/or technologically important, but challenging, properties (e.g., absolute nucleation rates). During my more than 10 years of research experience, I have lived and worked in many different countries (Sweden, The Netherlands, France, USA), and I have worked with many diverse research groups and teams. I am actively supporting key scientific principles such as open access (OA) publishing by writing blogs and by advocating for these principles among my fellow researchers. Furthermore, I am engaged in mechanisms to foster diversity and inclusion in the academia and our society at large, for example, by assuming a leadership role in our postdoc union at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
