Dr Angiras MENON
Angiras received his BA and MEng degrees in Chemical Engineering from the University of Cambridge in June 2016. He joined the Computational Modelling Group in Cambridge in October 2016 as a PhD student under Professor Markus Kraft and moved to Singapore to continue his studies. His research project involved using computational chemistry tools, particularly density functional theory, to study the gas-phase chemistry leading to the formation of soot nanoparticles formed in flames and engines. He is also interested in reaction kinetics, molecular dynamics, and optimisation techniques as applied to combustion and renewable energy.
