Henry Andres Cortes Paez
I am a physicist who holds a B.Sc. in Physics from the University of Quindío, Colombia, and a Ph.D. in Science and Technology: Physics from The National University of San Martín, Argentina. During my Ph.D., I researched the transport and morphology properties of the main discharge product in Li-air batteries, utilizing DFT calculations, electrochemical experiments, and atomic force microscopy.
After obtaining my Ph.D., I worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina, where I investigated the partitioning phenomenon within nanopores using large-scale MD simulations. Presently, I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Modelling and Simulation in Life and Material Sciences (MSLMS) group of Ikerbasque Prof. Elena Akhmatskaya at the Basque Center for Applied Mathematics. In my current position, I work on the development of force fields, post-processing tools, and performing large-scale atomistic simulations of electrolytes for Li-ion batteries.
