Computational Quantum Materials
Theoretical understanding and computational modeling of quantum materials (bulk and surfaces) using quantum mechanical first principles methodologies. Quantum Materials is a broad concept in condensed matter beyond strongly correlated electron systems, including: Mott physics, polaron physics, topological phases, non-collinear magnetism, excitons, multiferroism,etc.
