Research interests in our research group

Investigations of electronic and mechanical properties of deformed low-dimensional nanomaterials.

We investigate low-dimensional nanomaterials, especially carbon nanomaterials, for their structural, mechanical, vibrational, electronic, and electromechanical properties using computational methods ranging from continuum to first-principles electronic structure methods.
