Dr. Tibor Szilvási’s research group focuses on the design of functional materials with well-tailored specific properties by applying computational methods.
Societal needs require to develop efficient and cheap functional materials for various technologies. The Szilvási group is committed to accelerate the development of new materials by using fast and accurate computational methods to screen potential candidates and pinpoint materials with desired properties. Using computational methods, we can potentially save millions of dollars and years of tedious experimental efforts and therefore can provide solution for pressing problems in time.
Dr. Szilvási’s research group aims to focus on engineering interfaces and molecular materials. Specifically, we intend (i) to optimize catalysts relevant for industrial processes, (ii) to identify functional materials for soft matter applications, (iii) to design complex interfaces for energy and sensor applications. To achieve our goals, we also develop computational methods and protocols that can provide more accurate predictions for material design.
