Our group develops theory and computational methods to study the behavior of electrons in materials. We focus on first-principles calculations, which can predict the properties of materials using numerical quantum mechanics without any input from experiment. Our research sheds light on the interactions and motion of electrons, atomic vibrations, and other excitations in materials with ultrashort time and spatial resolutions. Knowledge of such microscopic processes governing condensed matter advances the understanding of transport, nonequilibrium dynamics, spin physics, and light-matter interactions. Our studies encompass a wide range of conventional and quantum materials with both fundamental interest and technological applications.
