Welcome to my webpage. I am a postdoc in the Theoretical Division (T-1) and the Center for Nonlinear Studies at Los Alamos National Laboratory, where I specialize in theoretical and computational condensed matter physics.
Earlier, I was a Ph.D. student in Physics at Stony Brook University.
I work on applications of density functional theory, time-dependent density functional theory, and electronic structure. My previous projects have involved aspects of quantum spin liquids, and I am broadly interested in quantum condensed matter theory.
Here is a brief bio, a description of my research, my publications, and talks.
- July 14, 2022: My paper jointly with collaborators, entitled “Cooperative Interactions between Surface Terminations Explain Photocatalytic Water Splitting Activity on SrTiO3” was published in the inaugural volume of PRX Energy, as a highlighted article. A popular scientific exposition of the central idea appeared in a Synopsis article, entitled “The Brains and Brawn Behind Splitting Water.”
- January 31, 2022: My paper jointly with collaborators, entitled “Cooperative Interactions between Surface Terminations Explain Photocatalytic Water Splitting Activity on SrTiO3,” was posted to the arXiv.
- August 23, 2021: I joined Los Alamos National Laboratory, as a postdoc working in the Theoretical Division (T-1) and the Center for Nonlinear Studies.
- July 13-17, 2021: My upcoming work was presented at the in-person workshop entitled “Water: Grand Challenges for Molecular Science and Engineering,” held at Telluride Science Research Center.
- June 18, 2021: I defended my Ph.D. thesis, entitled “Density Functional Theory Studies of Water Structure and Photo-reactivity in Oxide materials” at Stony Brook University.
