About me

Ab initio based multi-scale modelling of alloy phases and phase transformations

I am interested in multiscale computational models for studying materials, starting from the electronic and atomic structure of various defects (impurities, vacancies, stacking faults, dislocations, and grain boundaries) and extending to describe the interactions among these defects with the goal to predict the microstructure evolution and accompanying changes in the macroscopic mechanical properties of the material, taking into account external factors such as temperature and pressure.
