Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research is focused on reducing the risks of climate change by developing energy supplies with low carbon emissions. Students and post-doctoral fellows in my research group work on carbon dioxide storage, energy systems analysis, and pathways for transitioning to a low-carbon energy system.

BioThe research in the Bent laboratory is focused on understanding and controlling surface and interfacial chemistry and applying this knowledge to a range of problems in semiconductor processing, micro- and nano-electronics, nanotechnology, and sustainable and renewable energy. Much of the research aims to develop a molecular-level understanding in these systems, and hence the group uses of a variety of molecular probes. Systems currently under study in the group include functionalization of semiconductor surfaces, mechanisms and control of atomic layer deposition, molecular layer deposition, nanoscale materials for light absorption, interface engineering in photovoltaics, catalyst and electrocatalyst deposition.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe Boltzmann Transport Equation has important applications in both
non-continuum fluid mechanics and semiconductor research. It is an example of an
high-dimensional partial-differential equation (PDE) and describes the
evolution of a joint probability function. Due to the curse of dimensionality
these kind of equations are notoriously hard to solve. I work on parallel tensor
methods to solve high-dimensional PDEs in general and the Boltzmann Transport
Equation in particular.
