Post doctoral fellow

Matic Poberznik obtained his PhD degree in 2019 from the Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Technology of the Univeristy of Ljubljana.

His thesis work consisted mainly of the study of the oxidation of aluminum surfaces and their interactions with corrosion inhibitors by means of first principles calculations.

Since June 2020 he is a postdoc researcher at CNR-IOM, working on the implementation of ARTn as a plugin for DFT and molecular dynamics codes as well as the ab initio modeling of Barium hexaferite nanoplatelets that are being developed as part of the MAGNELIQ project.

His main interests involve the studies of physico-chemical processes that take place on the surfaces of metals and oxides by means of first principles calculations.
