Peter studied Chemical Informatics at the Technical University in Bratislava, Slovakia, where he earned his M.Sc. degree in 2004 and at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, United Kingdom, where he completed his Ph.D. in 2009 on population balance modelling of non-native protein aggregation. He then worked in the Chemical Robotics Laboratory, UCT Prague, Czech Republic, where he constructed a mathematical model describing the collective behaviour of gradient-responsive autonomous colloidal particles in liquid-filled porous media. In 2012 he moved to the Netherlands to study diffusion in molecular crystals at the Theoretical Chemistry department, Radboud University, Nijmegen. He joined CoMo in late 2014 and is currently performing molecular simulations of polyaromatic hydrocarbon nanoclusters. Peter is interested in collective phenomena, artificial nano-particle swarming and self-propulsion, aggregation and crystal growth.
