In Plain English
I study the structure and behaviour of a very common class of materials using both theory and computation. I develop theories to describe interesting effects in these materials, known as perovkites (see picture above), aided by computer simulations.
In particular, I am interested in how certain effects compete and/or interact with each other: Why do they occur? Why are some more favourable than others in certain materials? How are they related to one another? In order to utilise perovskites in modern technology (memory devices, solar cells, etc.), a better understanding of these effects is essential.
