Biography

Research:
Julius Jellinek is a Senior Scientist at the Chemical Sciences and Engineering Division of the Argonne National Laboratory and a Senior Fellow at the University of Chicago/Argonne Computation Institute. His main interests are in the field of finite-size systems and phenomena, especially on the nanometer and sub-nanometer scales. He has broad expertise and experience in theoretical, modeling and computational studies of structural, phase, electronic, magnetic, chemical reactivity (including catalytic), and other properties of atomic clusters and cluster-ligand systems. He enjoys working closely with experimentalists, and he was the group leader of a dominantly experimental Cluster Studies Group. Throughout his career he was and continues to be engaged in the development, algorithmic implementation and application of new fundamental conceptual frameworks and analysis tools that are specifically tailored for the finite-size regime. The areas of such developments include dynamics, statistical mechanics, and electronic structure, as well as more adequate and more efficient dynamical and statistical numerical simulation techniques.
