3.29 : Computational Nanoscience for Energy

Materials for energy conversion and storage can be greatly improved by taking advantage of unique effects that occur at the nanoscale. In many cases, these improvements are due to fundamental microscopic mechanisms that can be understood and predicted by cutting-edge simulation methods. This course will provide students with the fundamentals of computational problem-solving techniques that are used to elucidate the atomic-scale behavior of energy conversion and storage nano-materials.

Interdisciplinary Idea Generation

This is a general topic I am very interested in. Please see my work on Speedstorming for more information.
