My mission:

Ab-initio tensile test of a Σ5(210) Ir grain boundary with a segregated H atom.

My research focusses on studying the relationship between atomic-scale and macro-scale properties of materials. This involves the use of atomistic and electronic simulation techniques, such as DFT, to explain and predict physical properties at the macro-scale.

Currently I am studying the anomalous brittle fracture behaviour of transition metal Ir by performing 'ab-initio tensile tests' on various structures of Ir and studying the relationship between its atomistic fracture mode and its fundamental bonding nature.

Research Interests:

Atomistic simulations of magnetism
Density functional theory
Bond order potentials
