My research focus is on the phase transition of solids and their electron, phonon, and ion transport at high temperature and high pressure conditions. Materials of interests include strongly-correlated f-electron materials, superhard materials, iron-based superconductors, thermoelectric materials, and Li-rich superionic materials. With the help of in-house computation facility and petascale supercomputer in Oak Ridge National Lab, I apply and develop novel first-principles DFT and molecular dynamics methods and software packages to understand and predict new material behavior. Currently I am training three graduate students and one undergraduate student on various projects. I have published over 30 peer-reviewed papers and 20 presentations from HiPSEC-NNSA projects.

I study strongly correlated electron behaviours such as heavy fermion behaviour, Kondo volume collapse and valence fluctuation phenomena in rare earth and actinide intermetallic and organometallic compounds. I use x-ray diffraction, x-ray absorption near edge spectroscopy (XANES), resonant x-ray emission spectroscopy (RXES) and physical bulk property measurements at low temperature-high magnetic field and high pressure conditions.
