First-principles based multiscale modeling, synthesis-structure-property relationships of nanostructured materials, energy storage & conversion, carbon capture & utilization, semiconductor processing.
My research has a well-balanced emphasis on fundamentals and applications. Using first-principles based atomistic modeling my research group has focused on developing a deeper understanding of surface chemistry, solid-solid and solid-liquid interfaces, defects and chemical impurities, and charge carrier and phonon transport in nanostructured and disordered materials. By incorporating the fundamental knowledge and data into larger scale simulations, we have also devoted out efforts to addressing engineering problems encountered in the fabrication of energy and electronic devices.
