Adjunct Faculty: Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

Chemical Engineering


Dr. Goldman works on novel approaches to semi-empirical quantum simulations and reactive force fields. This includes the following application areas:

  1. Astrobiological synthesis of life-building compounds under extreme thermodynamic conditions;
  2. Modeling of laser-driven dynamic compression experiments related to high pressure-temperature materials properties;
  3. Corrosion on metal and metal-oxides due to atmospheric gases;
  4. Aging and degradation of polymeric materials.
