Research and Expertise

  • Theoretical and Computational Condensed Matter Physics

    Electronic structure calculations of semiconductors, especially complex multi-cation functional materials and alloys, to understand and  predict new energy conversion materials. Our goal is to predict new materials and their crystal structures. In addition, we are investigating new approaches to determine the stability of these newly predicted materials. We also predict chemical parameters to guide experimental synthesis of these new materials.
