Research Interests

Dr. Suetin's work is focused on multi-scale modelling of gas (CO2, CH4, H2, N2) uptake in porous materials and binding site search, using DFT, MP2, classical molecular dynamics simulations and grand-canonical Monte-Carlo calculations. Another important part of his work is guiding the experiment: performing a prediction of MOFs structures and their properties before the actual experiment starts. Dr. Suetin is revealing sorption mechanisms and structural changes in MOFs which cannot be explained by current experimental techniques.
