Jolyon Aarons is a doctoral supervisor and professor at Nankai University. He received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the University of York (Physics) and his doctoral degree from the University of Southampton (Chemistry). He is mainly devoted to the research of DFT (density functional theory) methods (including the optimization of electrons in metal systems and algorithms suitable for over 1000 atoms) and DFT application in catalysis, surface chemistry, and biological docking model parameterization. He is one of the contributors to the DFT software packages CASTEP and ONETEP. In the past five years, he has published 13 research papers in world-class chemistry journals, including five academic papers as the first author. In 2020, his group received funding from the National Natural Science Foundation of China. Dr. Jolyon Aarons has a robust scientific research background and is working hard to be one of the most competitive young scholars in the field of computational catalysis.
