Prof. Michel Dupuis’s research interests are in the area of computation for chemistry and materials relevant to new energy technologies, in particular the use of multi-scale, multi-physics, and high-performance computing approaches, to gain fundamental understanding that leads to predictive design. Recent fields of application involve energy conversion (catalysis, photocatalysis, photovoltaics) and energy storage (fuel cells, batteries). His expertise includes studies of electronic structure, spectroscopy, chemical reactions, electron transfer, and ion and molecule transport. His research deals with molecules, clusters, and complex systems in the gas phase, in the condensed phase, and in the solid state. He has been a PI or co-PI on a number of DOE-funded projects in chemical physics, catalysis, and materials. He was elected a Member of the International Academy of Quantum Molecular Sciences in 2005, a Fellow of the American Physical Society in 2007, and a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences in 2008 for his contributions to the advancement of the quantum molecular sciences, including the development of high performance computer codes for electronic structure calculations (HONDO, GAMESS, and NWCHEM). I have ~ 205 publications, ~ 20800 citations, an H-index ~ 52, and ~ 150 invited talks.
