Group Members

My name is Kevin Ryczko and I am working with Prof. I. Tamblyn in the field of Renewable Energy Nanoscience. I am a 2nd year Master's student in the modelling and computational science program at UOIT. I am currently finishing my thesis at the National Research Council of Canada in Canada's capital.

Undergraduate research

In my fourth year thesis, I studied online social networks, and built a simulation package called hashkat. The main objective of this work was to understand how online social networks grow, how connections form, and how information propogates throught them. See the publications section or below to read more.




Masters research

My research consists of studying liquid water-metal interfaces to understand the fundamentals of water electrolysis. Namely, I use ab initio electronic structure methods to investigate different interfaces. For more information, see the publications section or below.
