Research Interests

My research interest is studying the hybrid nanostructured materials by a combination of computational strategies and first-principle approaches, including density functional theory (DFT), time-dependent DFT and many-body perturbation theory. I focus on the structural, vibrational, electronic and photophysical properties of model material systems with different dimensionality and functions for light-emitting and photovoltaic applications.
