The Dreßler group investigates condensed matter systems using molecular dynamics simulations and develops multiscale models to describe ion transport in energy materials.

- Ab-initio molecular dynamics simulation

- multiscale modeling of long-range proton transport

- Markov models

- polarizable force fields

- linear density-density response function
