Engineering materials for targeted applications requires an understanding of the interplay between material structure and their expression. Research in my group (Group for Simulation and Theory of Atomic-scale Material Phenomena) uses computational techniques that span multiple scales, atomic- to continuum, to quantify the structure property relations in established and emerging material systems, both in technology and nature. Material systems of interest include nanomaterials, defect microstructures in crystalline materials, interfacial phenomena, and filamentous/layered assemblies at the nano-bio interface.
In addition to the innovative sustainability research and 130+ courses taught in sustainability each year at Northeastern, the campus has also been recognized as a top “green campus” worldwide for 2011-2013.
Northeastern University’s College of Engineering is home to numerous federally-funded research centers and an array of leading-edge projects and initiatives that advance discovery and new knowledge in health, sustainability, and security.
