Our research is all about prediction - we develop and apply advanced computer modelling at the molecular level, based on fundamental principles of chemistry, physics and mathematics, to predict properties and behaviours of anything that is composed of atoms and molecules.
Together with experimental findings, our predictions can help frame hypotheses to account for observed experimental behaviours and indicate clear pathways for testing these hypotheses.
Our predictions can also provide strong guidance for industrially focused projects where questions of formulation and types/numbers of additives need to be addressed quickly and economically.
If there is a way to describe the system/material at an atomic or molecular level, there is no bar in principle to the type of material or system we can model.
Our research can form a platform resource for a wide range of other research activities.
We have a strong track record in securing substantial super-computing resources for projects based on competitive merit-based allocation.
