Ghent University joins ZeoMorph as Associated Partner
The group of Professor Veronique Van Speybroeck at the Center for Molecular Modeling at Ghent Univeristy has joined the ZeoMorph project as an associated partner. Prof. Speybroeck is an expert in theoretical modeling.
Veronique Van Speybroeck is full professor at the Ghent University within the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture, since October 2012. She also holds a position as Research Professor at the Ghent University. Her subject of expertise is related to theoretical simulation of first principle kinetics in nanoporous materials in the frame of an ERC starting grant, awarded in 2010 on a subject dealing with accurate prediction of chemical kinetics of catalytic reactions taking place in nanoporous materials. Her current research interests focus on first principle molecular dynamics simulations of complex chemical transformation in nanoporous materials, for which she received an ERC Consolidator grant in 2015. The purpose of adding this new associated partner is to host one of the candidates (Malte Nielsen) for a secondment. The objective is to carry out molecular dynamics simulations to study the fundamental properties of the zeolite catalysts.
