Catalysis Modelling Group (CMG)

Overview

Dem Anwenden muss das Erkennen vorausgehen.
Insight must precede application.
— Max Planck


Those who are enamored with practice without science are like a pilot who goes into a ship without rudder or compass and who can never be certain where he is going. Practice should always be based on a sound knowledge of theory... of which perspective is the guide and gateway, and without it nothing can be done well in any kind of painting
— Leonardo da Vinci




The Catalysis Modelling Group (CMG) is a part of the Institute of High Performance Computing at A*STAR. Our research involves computer modeling of homogeneous as well as heterogeneous catalytic reactions at the atomistic level, exploring pathways in step-wise fashion. We use mostly first-principles electronic structure calculations in conjunction with high performance computing facilities to model reactions. We are a highly interdisciplinary group which combines extensive co-operation and collaboration between different research institutes and industry partners all over the world. Our aim is to provide research at the forefront of the field with the most elaborate data manageable with modern high performance computing equipment.



Postdoctoral positions within the group are available. For more information, please click here
