Biography

Dr Elke Pahl is a Senior Lecturer at the School of Natural and Computational Sciences, Massey University Auckland.

Research interests

Elke’s research focusses on the modelling of material properties under normal conditions and in extreme environments characterised by ultra-high pressures or magnetic fields. In particular, she is interested in describing melting from an atomistic view using quantum-mechanical tools and understanding how solid-state properties emerge from small few-atom clusters.

Our work validated the only experimental result that exists, and that was from the beginning of last century. Radon’s radioactive properties means that nobody wants to measure it in a lab anymore.
