About the Group

Our group endeavors to understand heterogeneous catalysis and electrocatalysis at an atomic level through the use of kinetic, isotopic, and spectroscopic studies combined with state-of-the-art density functional theory calculations in order to improve conversions of fossil- and biomass-derived feedstocks into fuels and chemicals.

Furthermore, the group has developed programs for simple setup and automation of DFT calculations and a web-interface for visualizing their results, permitting high throughput studies (without scaling relationships) and rapid verification of calculation results.
(Take a tour of our web-interface for VASP calculations.)


Hibbitts Research Group Rapidly Growing
