University researcher (Doc.)
I am a University researcher at the University of Helsinki focusing on computational material science. I am the team leader for the Advanced Computing Hub Helsinki project under EUROfusion. My main research field is Molecular Dynamics simulations of irradiation in metals. The main focus is on high-dose effects in fusion relevant metals (W, Fe and Fe-alloys) as well as Multicomponent alloys. Another focus is on surface irradiation effects such as sputtering of fusion relevant materials.
