Our group uses computational materials science tools to investigate material properties at different scales of length and time. We use a variety of tools (such as: Ab Initio calculations, molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo, phase-field models, CALPHAD) to investigate the fundamental properties of complex materials.
In the past three years, our research has focused on:
- Investigation of Microstructural Evolution at Liquid/Solid Interfaces during Lead-free Soldering
- Computational Materials Design of Novel High-Temperature Shape Memory Alloys
- Phase Stability in Al-Si-Sr Alloys
- Thermodynamics and Kinetics of Hydrogen Storage in Mg-based Nano-layered Thin Films
- Phase Stability in Nuclear Fuel Materials
- Computational Design of Novel High Strength Steels
