During my doctoral research I have studied chemical reactions at single crystal metall surfaces using molecular beams, ion imaging and lasers. My main interest was to make a carefull measurment of surface reaction rates and break the observations down to the level of microscopic processes and quantify them.
Fascinated by the degree of detail provided from ESR-STM to study magnetism of single atoms and molecules at surfaces I joined QNS. My research interest lies in the functionalization of transition metal atoms by small molecules like carbon monoxide and understand the resulting magnetic and quantum-coherent properties. I am also curious about potential applications of ESR-STM to better understand reactivity at catalytic surfaces.
