Eamon McDermot

Eamon is interested in simulating the electronic structure of various materials with energy applications. This includes a class of materials known as photocatalysts, which use energy absorbed from sunlight to drive useful chemical reactions, including for hydrogen storage and organic contaminant breakdown. He also studies magnetically doped graphene and its interesting spin-polarized electronic properties, which may make the material useful in spintronic applications.
