The various challenges in bringing modern approaches of condensed matter theory to real materials are the main motivation for our work. The research in my group is focused on the development of first-principles-based methods to study the fundamental physics of emerging materials.
Quantum Transport Simulations
The development of methods and tools to simulate charge carrier transport, polaron transport, and spin transport in complex matter is a main direction of research in the group. This includes also transverse transport phenomena. The quantum-to-classical transition is of particular interest.
This class offers great potential as the atomic structure is precisely defined and changing a single atom may change the fundamental physics properties completely. Electronics based on molecular structures is therefore an obvious direction for science. Our research on electronic, optical and transport properties enjoys several collaborations.
