I have moved to Louisiana State University, Department of Geology and Geophysics.

Undergraduate and graduate students and postdoc positions are available.

Research Interests:

High-performance computer modeling and simulations: Applications of quantum chemistry and molecular dynamics in Earth materials and geochemistry. The research is highly facilitated by supercomputer centers including TeraGrid (NCSA, NICS) and NERSC.

  • Phase behaviors (defect, phase transition, melting) of materials at extreme condition (e.g., high pressure, high temperature, high-energy irradiation).
  • Order-disorder and defect in complex oxides and nuclear waste forms.
  • Interaction between biomaterials and mineral surfaces, biominerals, biomineralization.
  • Gas hydrates, hydrogen clathrate hydrate for hydrogen storage.
  • Molecular modeling of water at interfaces of Earth materials, biomineralization, water-vapor interface.
