Tentative title
Operando modeling of zeolites: double machine learning approach for solid state NMR simulations
Professor Petr Nachtigall completed his Ph.D. in 1995 at the University of Pittsburgh. He then moved to Prague, where he held a research position in the Academy of Sciences of Czech Republic (Institute of Physical Chemistry and later Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry). In 2010 he moved to the Faculty of Science at Charles University, where he is a professor of physical chemistry. His research is focused on the theoretical investigation of surface properties of solids, related mainly to gas adsorption and catalytic processes involving microporous and nanostructured materials (research group page). Petr Nachtigall has authored over 180 publications (, with about 7800 citation, H-index = 54.
