Research Interest

Research aims at physical phenomena at ultra small (nano)-scale and in low-dimensional system via large-scale atomistic computational approach. Our objectives are to 1) develop a basic understanding of physical properties of finite-size systems (cluster, nano-crystals, molecular/nano-wires) and their interaction with bulk matter, 2) understand interface electronic structure, magnetic interaction, charge and spin transport, and emerging properties and processes. Recent funded projects in my group includes molecular magnets, gated transport and interface processes, and reduction of thermal noise in optical coating within the LIGO scientific collaboration.
