Welcome to the Persson Group home page. We study the physics and chemistry of materials using atomistic computational methods and high-performance computing technology.
We focus on materials for energy applications, such as battery electrode materials, electrolytes, photocatalysts, thermoelectrics, etc.
Forbes interviewed Kristin about supercomputing at LBNL and the potential for computing to change the face of materials discovery, synthesis, and manufacturing. Read it here.
American Public Media’s “Marketplace” radio program interviewed Kristin about battery technology. Listen to it / read the transcript here.
