Research Interests 

My research is in the field of computational materials science: using first-principles, parameter-free computing methods to predict and understand properties of materials - such as their stability, elastic, electronic, and optical attributes.

As member of the Centre for Science at Extreme Conditions, a part of my research focuses on the occurrence of new, interesting phases of various materials under conditions of extreme compression and high temperatures.
