My research deals primarily with the electronic structure of surfaces with and without adsorbed layers of atoms. We approach the problem in two ways:
1) as an embedding problem in which surface layers are embedded into the underlying substrate by means of an embedding potential; and
2) as a boundary problem in which the imposition of a non-reflecting boundary condition eliminates most of the non-physical effects arising from an artificial boundary separating surface and substrate regions.

I am a Professor at Baylor University, and regularly visit TCM for a month in the summer.
