My project focuses on the computational design of superior hydrogen permeation barriers. These coatings are important for general corrosion resistance, and specifically for protecting steel infrastructure used in storage and transport of hydrogen gas. I focus on using ab initio thermodynamics to tune the defect chemistry of the oxide bulk and the oxide|metal interface to improve hydrogen barrier properties of oxide-based coatings.
