Research

I am interested in the following research topics

         Modeling Epitaxial Growth

         Fundamentals of Nucleation and Thin Film Growth

         Materials for Sustainable Energy

         Strain-Driven Formation and Self-Organization of Quantum Dots and Nano-Structures

         Design and Stability of Heterocrystal Interfaces using High-Throughput Screening

         Stability of Semiconductor Reconstructions

         Diffusion on Metal and Semiconductor Surfaces

I am using the following theoretical and modeling tools

         Density-functional theory (DFT)

         The Level-set method

         Kinetic Monte-Carlo methods
