Research interests

Gábor Csányi is an expert in atomistic simulation, particularly in multiscale modelling that couples quantum mechanics to larger length scales. He is currently engaged in applying machine learning techniques to materials modelling problems, in particular to generate larger scale descriptions from data on smaller scales. He is also interested in statistical problems in molecular dynamics.

Strategic themes

Uncertainty, risk and resilience

Some of the modelling work may have applications in robust optimisation, and also in understanding materials failure.
