Research focus:

Electronic structure and atomic-scale modelling of materials for solar energy applications. Comprehensive modeling of band gaps, optical spectra, and defect and polaronic properties.

Theoretical methods:

Density functional theory and beyond (e.g. hybrid functionals, GW method), molecular dynamics simulations, defect and interface calculations.

Focus of future research:

Application of 2D materials in solar devices
Interfaces between 3D semiconductors and 2D materials
Temperature effects in 2D materials
