The discovery of materials with novel properties drives new technological advances. In order to discover new materials, we have to understand and control mechanisms that govern material properties. The development of supercomputers enables us to study materials computationally at length-scales that are commensurate with experiments. Our research interests lie in developing numerical algorithms that facilitate materials modeling, as well as applying existing computational tools to study material behavior. The current focus is on atomistic modeling of materials using molecular dynamics and density functional theory.More About Our Research
