Alexander works on modelling the formation of volatile PtO2 from Pt alloy catalysts in oxidative catalysis, such as the Ostwald process, with the goal of enhancing long-term stability and reducing the loss of noble metal.
My group at TU Berlin does research in the area of computational modeling and simulation of heterogeneous catalyst systems. My special interest is in the modeling of catalyst stability and aging under realistic reaction conditions with the ultimate goal of identifying simple descriptors that enable the prediction of new catalyst materials that are both active and stable.
