Author Biography

About the Author

Dr. Veronika Brazdova obtained her PhD from Humboldt University Berlin in 2005 with Professor J. Sauer. She is currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the London Centre for Nanotechnology, University College London. Her research is focused on computational simulations of solid state surfaces and interfaces, using mainly density functional theory. She has been collaborating closely with experimental groups. She is also an experienced programmer, particularly in Fortran 90 and the Message Passing Interface. She has supervised many undergraduate students taking their first steps in computational physics.

Dr. David R. Bowler received his D.Phil. from Oxford University in 1997. He has been a Reader in Physics at UCL since 2005, and held a Royal Society University Research Fellowship from 2002-2010. He is a PI in the London Centre for Nanotechnology and the London-wide Thomas Young Centre. He has driven the development of the massively-parallel linear scaling density functional theory code, Conquest, and collaborates extensively with experimental groups on the growth and properties of nanostructures on semiconductor surfaces.
