Bernardi Research Group

Research Overview

We develop and apply quantum mechanical calculations to study the dynamics of electrons and excited states in materials. Our calculations aim to understand energy in materials with Angstrom space and femtosecond time resolutions, by combining theory and massively parallel computational algorithms that use the atomic structure of the material as the only input. Applications of our work include novel materials and technologies for energy conversion, as well as electronics, optoelectronics and ultrafast spectroscopy.
