William R. Smith
My focus is the development and applications of molecular-level simulation algorithms for the prediction of macroscopic thermodynamic and transport properties of matter. This combines computer simulation and mathematical modeling of phenomena in physics, chemistry, biology and chemical engineering.
I supervise students in the Biophysics, Mathematics and Statistics, and Chemistry graduate programs at the University of Guelph, and in the Chemical Engineering program at the University of Waterloo.
I am currently the Principal Investigator on a major research project aimed at discovering new solvents for CO2 capture by means of molecular simulation, in collaboration with colleagues at Blaise Pascal University in Clermont-Ferrand, France.
