Gabriel Antonius is a physicist, specialized in numerical simulations of materials. He obtained his PhD in physics from Université de Montréal, then worked as a postdoctoral fellow at University of California Berkeley, and Lawrence-Berkeley National Laboratory. He is a professor at Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières since 2018.
His research employs first-principles calculations to simulate the atoms and electrons of materials, and solve the equations of quantum mechanics to predict their physical properties. He studies the optical and thermal properties of materials, and his research interests include materials for energy production and storage, such as batteries and materials for photocatalysis, as well as quantum materials such as superconductors and topological insulators.
