Research Interests: physics of surfaces and nanostructures, materials, computational physics (density functional theory, molecular dynamics simulation, Monte Carlo simulation); theoretical spectroscopy: infrared, visible, ultraviolet, x-rays; astrophysically interesting materials: cosmic dust and molecules in space; asteroids; machine learning

Current Topics: I study molecules, nanostructures and crystals on Earth and in the Cosmos

Recent highlights:
