Chemistry Department faculty profile 

Modeling catalysts and materials for sustainability is the focus of my research group. We are developing and applying simulation methods to model self-assembly of nanoporous materials such as zeolites, and the dynamics of organic molecular transformations within zeolite nanopores. We are also developing data science approaches for understanding the fantastic complexity of crystal formation, and for ranking the synthesizability of hypothetical materials. Our ultimate goal is to shed light on the "atomic dance" underlying complex chemical transformations, and to assist in the design of new materials with advanced properties for a sustainable future.

Auerbach is an adjunct in Chemical Engineering and is also affiliated with the Materials Science and Engineering interdisciplinary graduate program in the College of Engineering.
