Maciej Buze


Second year MASDOC student, supervised by Prof. Christoph Ortner and Dr Thomas Hudson.




Area of Interests:

Atomistic models for crystalline defects, with the current focus on theoretical improvements in the construction of the models and on the translation of the well-developed theory to a less pleasent setup of a crack defect.
