Welcome to the Materials Theory and Modeling Group

Dr. Lan Li’s research group develop and apply computer-based theoretical methodologies to capture structure-property-performance relationships and design materials for desired device performance. Current research encompasses of:

  • Materials-by-design for electronic and energy applications.
  • DNA network arrays for solar energy harvesting and quantum computing applications.
  • Magnetism, transport and quantum phenomena in nanoscaled materials.
  • Infrastructure development for computational modeling research
  • Multiscale modeling techniques, e.g. hybrid quantum mechanics/molecular mechanics, finite element method coupled with first-principles quantum simulation.
