I study hydrogen and metal hydrides under extreme pressure, mostly within the framework of density functional theory. My research involves crystal structure prediction, the construction of pressure-temperature phase diagrams, the calculation of superconducting properties from first principles, and the study of anharmonic vibrations. I also work on developing proxies and models for the superconducting critical temperature and am interested in making these amenable to high-throughput applications.
