Associate Professor, Physics & Astronomy and Center Computation & Technology, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge.
Computational materials science, strongly correlated systems.
Dynamical mean-field theory and its extensions to explore the experimentally relevant transport and magnetic properties of correlated electron systems.
PhD in Physics from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey (1997); post-doctoral positions at the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics, Trieste, Italy (1996-1998) and Northwestern University, Evaston, US (1998-2001).
One projectinourgroup supported by CIMM isaimedat understanding the role of voids on metallic alloys. We study the failure mechanisms at the atomistic scale when subjectedto loading. This work requires extensive computations of the stress-strain curves, yield stress, elastic constants, etc at different loading rates, cell sizes andvoid volume fraction. This year we have focused on Ni3Al and NiAl.
