Atomistic modeling of solute precipitate nucleation
主讲人：Erik E. Santiso
Erik E. Santiso is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at North Carolina State University. Dr. Santiso worked as an Assistant Professor at Simón Bolívar University in Caracas, Venezuela, from 1995 to 2001. From 2001 to 2002 he worked as a Visiting Scientist at the Reservoir Engineering Research Institute (RERI) in Palo Alto, California. He then got his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering in 2007 at North Carolina State University, working on molecular modeling of chemical reactions in nanoconfinement. From 2007 to 2011, he worked as a Postdoctoral Associate in the Department of Chemical Engineering at M.I.T., where he developed methods for discovering new materials in silico, and for modeling the nucleation of molecular crystals. From 2011 to late 2012, he worked at Imperial College London on improving computational polymorph screening methods, as well as applying top-down coarse-grained models to predict interfacial properties. He has over 30 peer-reviewed publications with nearly 700 citations and has co-authored three books on computational science and engineering, quantum calculations on interfaces, and crystallization.
