I am currently interested in the first-principles modeling of structures and properties of semiconductors and quantum materials. My advisor is Chris G. Van de Walle.   Here is the link   to our group. I am happy to chat if you get interested in our group.

My current project is about the first-principles study of beryllium oxide. The most recent update can be seen by my 2021 APS march meeting talk .
