Research Interests
I am interested in first-principles calculations for diverse condensed matter systems. During my PhD course, I mainly focused on the instabilities of low dimensional electronic systems, interaction between organic molecules and semiconductor and metal surfaces, van der Waals interaction, magnetism and iridates. After moving KIAS, I am mainly working on 2D materials, especially black phosphorus and transition metal dichalcogenides to understand charge density wave, superconductivity, topological nature and its energy-related applications.
