Welcome to the web page of the Computational Materials Simulation laboratory, led by me. My work involves understanding and predicting the microscopic phenomena behind the electronic, magnetic, and transport properties of emerging materials using the state-of-the-art quantum mechanical density functional theory based methods. Within these framework, my current interest is oriented towards analyzing the charge and heat transport phenomena in thermoelectric solid, understanding the magnetic properties in strongly correlated materials, and inspecting defects and related properties in semiconductor.
