Research Interests

"Computational Materials Science" - attempts to mold modern theories of materials phenomena and their computational solution in order to predict properties and characterize materials.

  • Thermodynamics and chemistry of materials via electronic-structure based methods, e.g., structual-ordering transitions in and properties of multicomponent alloys
  • Mechanical properties by integration of generalized defect energy surfaces and mesoscale dislocation mechanics
  • Multiscale modeling for spatial and temporal scales
  • Energy-storage and catalytic properties of supported nanoassemblies
  • New computational methods and algorithms to perform reliable materials discover and/or design
