Methods: Quantum many-body systems, statistical many-body systems, and disordered systems have in common the huge configuration space accessible only by Monte-Carlo. Developing efficient methods for these systems is of my primary methodological interest.
Applications: Structural and electronic properties of organic and inorganic semiconductors in various forms from crystals to nanostructures for optoelectronics, sensing, and energy conversion/storage.
Current research includes computer-aided design and first-principle modeling of the following classes of materials:
Research prior to 2011 is summarized in ResearchHighlights.pdf and includes also projects on:
Other topics of interest and my area of expertise or inexpertise can be traced by the entries of my personal library.
