Research Interests


The focus of our research group is on predicting the response of materials from fundamental scales using atomistic simulations and multi-scale modeling. Current research topics include:


  1. Mechanical properties of nanostructures via atomistic simulations


  1.    Statistical mechanics of fluctuating crystalline interfaces 


  1.    Time scaling approaches in atomistic simulations


  1. Radiation tolerance and high temperature stability of nanotwinned structures


  1.    Thermal transport across interfaces and two-dimensional materials
