Main tasks and responsibilities:
Data-driven discovery of new nano-porous materials for the storage of green hydrogen. High-throughput virtual screening based on first-principle calculations will be used to characterize a large number of potential materials based on metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). The resulting large and complex data will be exploited in machine learning models predicting the adsorption capacity of MOFs. The analysis of these models will enable the design and discovery of novel MOFs.
