Water remains the most fascinating liquid in our world. In order to provide new insights into aqueous phase behavior, I am developing machine learning methodology trained on accurate electronic structure calculations. In close collaboration with experiment, I apply these models to water in complex environments. Overall, my research aims at the modelling of aqueous systems at previously unreachable accuracy to provide reliable structural and dynamical insights into the aqueous phase.
