|Our group conducts research on the frontier problems of quantum transport of electron charge and spin in a variety of nanostructures. The that we are currently pursuing include:
We are also working on the development of new theoretical and computational formalisms, often involving massively parallel codes, which are required to study quantum many-body systems far from equilibrium. The principal tools that we employ daily include nonequilibrium Green function theory, density functional theory, and dynamical mean field theory.
Our research is supported by the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Department of Energy.
