What do we do?
Our research in computational science lies at the intersection of materials physics and mechanics. Our team is engaged in a diverse array of work that spans continuum to atomistic computational methods to design and understand new materials and structures to address a wide range of globally and societally relevant issues, such as energy sustainability to next-generation electronics to environmental remediation. We use a variety of techniques, from molecular dynamics to density functional theory to quantum Monte Carlo methods, to address problems related to mechanical phenomena at the nanoscale, the design of advanced energy conversions systems, and the study of novel surface and interface phenomena.
