Research

Our research interests are in the areas of superconductivity, magnetism, defects and thermoelectric materials. Structure prediction is the driven-force behind to accelerate the design of novel materials. We use theoretical tools (mostly at density-functional theory level) implemented in computational codes that efficiently calculate electronic band structure on complex structures. We are also interested in development algorithms to be exploited in high-throughput computational screening for new materials. Machine-learning started to make his on way in our research, currently one main project points towards this direction.
