Welcome to the McDaniel Research Group! Our group develops and applies theoretical and computational methods to solve a diverse range of problems in chemistry and materials science. We utilize a wide variety of ab initio electronic structure methods along with high-performance molecular simulations to understand physical processes involving self-assembly, phase transitions, electrode/electrolyte interfaces, proton transport, and nanostructured materials. We are particularly interested in fundamental research aimed at advancing fuel cell, battery, and supercapacitor technology for electrochemical energy storage.
