My field of research is computational materials science and theoretical physics/chemistry with particular emphasis on study of functional organic and inorganic semiconductors and nanostructures with applications to optoelectronics and energy conversion and storage.

  • Modeling of materials and devices for energy conversion and storage (example, review)
  • Modeling of materials and devices for optoelectronics (example)
  • Organic electronics (example)
  • Developing methods for description of structural and electronics properties of materials (example)
  • Mathematical and computational physics and chemistry broadly defined (example)

1-year projects for students and researchers

  • Organic electronics: Design of biocompatible semiconductors (recent experiment)
  • Organic electronics: Explain puzzling optical properties (experiment)
  • Solar cells: Design of perovskite solar cells (recent experiment)
  • Rechargeable batteries: Design of metal-ion cathodes (plenty of experimental data)
  • Methods development: Solve Holstein Hamiltonian for molecular crystals
