Shay Chaudhuri

Postgraduate Research Student; PhD start date: October 2019

My research involves looking into the theory of electrochemically-driven metal nucleation on diamond electrodes, specifically looking at the diamond(110) surface, by using ab initio simulations based on density functional theory (DFT) and the density-functional tight-binding (DFTB) method to study the initial stages of nanoparticle growth using electrodeposition and the stability of nanoparticles on different sizes on oxygen-passivated diamond.

I am tied with the Diamond Science and Technology (DST) CDT, with the project being sponsored by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC)
