Our research focuses on utilizing computational tools to accelerate the discovery and design of novel functional materials for various technologically-useful applications. One of the key aspects of our research is to make our computational data free and publicly accessible. To this end, we have developed the Thermoelectrics Design Lab TEDesignLab (www.tedesignlab.org), a thermoelectrics-focused virtual platform that contains thermoelectric performance rankings of materials as well a suite of interactive web-based tools to explore and mine the data. We are also collaborating with Citrine Informatics to create the first-ever database of first-principles defect calculations.
Given the interdisciplinary nature of our research, we collaborate with a number of experimental as well as computational research groups.
