first-principles calculations for nanomaterialsquantum confinement effects in semiconductor nanowireselectronic properties of functionalized carbon nanotubestime-dependent density functional theory for photovoltaic materials


I am an associate professor in the Department of Chemical & Environmental Engineering and Materials Science & Engineering Program at UC Riverside. My current research interests include time-dependent density functional theory for photovoltaic materials, electronic properties of functionalized carbon nanotubes, quantum confinement effects in semiconductor nanowires, first-principles calculations for nanomaterials, and energy exchange from electron-scattering quantum calculations. I am listed in the Reviews in Computational Chemistry (Volume 27) as a researcher who "regularly publishes in journals that focus on computing at the molecular level." I received my Ph.D. in physical chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2007.
