Tomas Kamencek graduated in Technical Physics in 2018 in the group of Prof. Egbert Zojer at the institute of solid state physics at the Graz University of Technology. His work during that time was mostly related to the simulation of phonon band structures, vibrational properties, Raman and infrared spectra, and modelling elastic constants and anharmonic properties (thermal expansion, thermal conductivity etc.) of metal-organic frameworks. Subsequently, he started his PhD studies within the Lead Project Porous Materials at Work under the joint supervision of Prof. Paolo Falcaro and Prof. Egbert Zojer.
