Ayotte Lab

Our group is investigating physics and chemistry of ices. We use various surface science techniques to probe complex reaction dynamics as well as underlying mechanisms occurring in ice and at its surface. Through molecular modelling and numerical simulations, we endeavour to provide molecular level interpretations leading to a better understanding of environmental problems such as heterogeneous chemistry phenomena occurring in the atmosphere.
