Research

Our research is centered in unveiling how the structure and dynamics of atoms relate to the exotic properties often found in nanoscale materials. Such detailed understanding, enables an atom-by-atom design, following a bottom-up paradigm, of materials with new/improved functionalities. This ambitious goal is meet by pushing the limits of first-principles and all-atom molecular dynamics simulations in a wide range of interdisciplinary research areas, often in a cooperative effort with different experimental groups.
