Research interest

  • Quantum modelling of materials using first principles computational methods
  • The research work is concerned with the theoretical understanding and computational modelling of quantum materials (bulk and surfaces) using first principles methods (primarly VASP). Quantum materials are systems with many interacting degrees of freedom (lattice, spin and electron orbital) that represent a rich platform for the discovery of novel electronic and magnetic phases with fundamental and applicative interest. Specific topics include: Metal-insulator transitions, Polaron physics (electron-phonon interactions), non-collinear spin orderings, topological Dirac/Weyl phases, multiferroism and superconductivity.
