  • Research Interests:My research focuses on studying materials properties using first principles calculations. That is, I try to understand and predict materials properties for different applications ( nuclear, thermoelectric, ...) using ab initio (quantum mechanical) approach. In addition, I use experimental neutron scattering techniques to study materials properties under normal and extreme conditions. The main areas are: - Ab initio calculations - Thermal properties of materials under high pressures and at high temperatures - Irradiation effect - Neutron Thermalization in nuclear moderators - Evaluated nuclear data file (ENDF) - Experimental Neutron scattering
