We all work in the development of simulation techniques and in their application to different problems, as well as in theoretical models to understand the simulation and experimental results. Topics include:

  • Computational and theoretical condensed matter physics.
  • Complex solids and liquids, using first-principles molecular dynamics based on density-functional theory and on linear-scaling density-functional theory.
  • Nanoscale oxide heterostructures including multiferroics, liquid water, and water/solid interfaces, and non-adiabatic processes related to radiation damage of materials.
