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 simulation 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)
