At the Virginia Nano-Computing Research Group, our focus is on understanding non-equilibrium properties of nano-scale material structures. Our work applies a combined understanding of fundamental physics , chemistry, material science, and device engineering to explore novel device concepts.

We also explore and utilize high performance computational resources including the use numerical algorithms to advance our understanding of nanoscale science and engineering. To address the challenges of extending today’s electronic devices to the next generation of devices, science can no longer work out of context to engineering, but rather both should work in tandem. The interdisciplinary nature of our approach is necessary to explain the science and push the engineering of future devices.
