Matt Watkins is a Reader (Associate Professor) in the School of Mathematics and Physics at the University of Lincoln UK.
Our group works closely with leading experimental and computational groups to develop simulation tools to understand chemical physics processes at the nanoscale.
Current interests are characterisation of solid-liquid interfaces: We are developing methods to simulate Atomic Force Microscopy in Liquids; Electron transport across interfaces; Electrochemistry; excited state processes.
We are working with leading experimental and computational groups to transform Atomic Force Microscopy in solution into a practical tool for characterizing solid-liquid interfaces at atomic resolution.
We are implementing an efficient version of Time Dependent Density Functional theory into the CP2K code
We investigate the properties of many interface systems.
Metal oxide / Metal for photo-cathode or microelectronics.
Molecular layers / insulators for new optical materials and coatings.
Solid liquid intefaces for electrochemical and energy applications.
We are implementing a version of electronic transport using Non Equilibrium Green's Functions into the CP2K code.
