I am a postdoctoral researcher at Linn Leppert's group at the University of Twente.

My research expertise was focused on non-adiabatic excited state molecular dynamics simulations applied to electronic and vibrational relaxation of large conjugated systems. I have a big interest in extending this expertise in the improvement of methodologies to understand the dynamic of excitons in solid systems like perovskites.
