Research Interests

My research employs statistical thermodynamics and computational chemistry tools to probe molecular motion and the microscopic structure of matter, which gives insight into their macroscopic properties. Emphasis is on the developments of efficient molecular simulation algorithms and accurate force fields for describing the interactions of atoms and molecules of systems of interests. Current applications include

  • Calculations of thermophysical properties of carbon dioxide mixtures (especially those containing water and other flue gases). These properties are vital for the design of more efficient and safer pipelines, compressors and storage locations.
  • Gas storage and phase behaviour in porous materials
  • Computer simulations of ionic liquids for charge storage devices operated under extreme conditions.

Personal profile

Dr. Hainam Do graduated with a first-class degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Nottingham UK in 2007. He received his PhD in Computational Chemistry from the same university in 2011, under the supervision of Professor Jonathan Hirst and Dr. Richard Wheatley. After obtaining his PhD, he was awarded a one-year prestigious independent research fellowship from the EPSRC (the EPSRC Doctoral Prize) hosted by the University of Nottingham. Following the Doctoral Prize fellowship, he spent the next three years as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the research group of Dr. Nick Besley at the University of Nottingham. In 2014, he joined the research group of Prof. Alessandro Troisi at the University of Warwick and in 2015 he returned to Nottingham to work with Dr. Richard Wheatley. In 2017, he was appointed as an Assistant Professor in Chemical Engineering at the University of Nottingham Ningbo China.
