POSTDOCTORAL ASSOCIATE, COMPUTATIONAL STUDIES OF FUNCTIONAL OXIDESMaterials Science and Engineering-Laboratory for Electrochemical Interfaces, to work on computational studies of oxide defects and defect properties advised by Professor Bilge Yildiz. The goal of the research is to resolve how oxygen defects and cation defects couple to strain and solid-solid interfaces, and as a result, affect electronic, magnetic, and thermal properties in functional oxides for energy conversion and data processing devices. The research is computational and involves electronic- and atomic-level methods and is performed in collaboration with several other faculty at MIT.
