Lead Scientist for Simulations and Theory
Institute for Integrated Catalysis, Pacific Northwest National LaboratoryDr. Roger Rousseau is the lead Computation and Modeling scientist at PNNL's Institute for Integrated Catalysis and has active research programs in both basic and applied research. He completed his Ph.D. in 1995 at the University of Michigan in Chemistry and went on to Postdoc at MPI Stuttgart (1996-1997. Prior to his current position he was associate professor of condensed matter physics at the International School for Advanced studies in Trieste Italy. His research extends to development and application of electronic structure combined with statistical mechanics and micro kinetics to model complex and dynamics systems of multiple time scales. Extensive experience in the integration of theory and computation with concurrent experimental studies in fields ranging from Organometallic Chemistry, Materials Chemistry and Physics, Surface Science and Heterogeneous Catalysis.
