Research Interests

  • Characterization of thin film materials beyond graphene, i.e. transition metal dichalcogenides heterostructures: electronic structure and spectroscopy in the framework of density functional theory.
  • Theoretical modelling of the effects of dopants and vacancies on the electronic properties of high-Tc’s, topological insulators and other novel materials.
