Research Interests

My research focuses on materials design using both advanced quantum chemistry methods and large-scale classical molecular dynamics simulations. Current areas of interest include:

    1. The design of chemically self-regulated polymerization processes for acrylic polymers
    2. Computational optimization of ferroelectric materials for non-volatile memory devices and SONAR devices.
    3. Methodology development for modeling complex functional oxides.
