Research Focus

We are a theory and computational group interested in the understanding and design of nanomaterials and nanodevices. Towards this goal, we employed a range of multiphysics and multiscale tools both retrospectively (e.g. corroborating our results to experiments) and prospectively (e.g. predicting new phenomena and finding solutions to open problems). Our work in recent years is largely focused on the class of two-dimensional crystals and their heterostructures, topological and magnetic materials. We revealed their basic electronic and optical properties, and their opportunities for novel electronics, spintronics, optoelectronics, nanophotonics and plasmonics.


Postdoctoral and PhD positions available.
