Computational Methods for Design of New Functional Materials

Tuesday, April 2, 2019

A two-hour seminar will be held on the topic of Computational methods for design of new functional materials at 13:00-15:00 on 2nd April 2019, in Room TS 335.

Anyone interested in the topic is welcome. Discussions and opportunities for collaboration can be raised during the seminar.

The presentation will be delivered by Assoc. Prof. Ilya Grinberg, who has published a number of papers on Nature and Nature Materials, from Department of Chemistry, Bar-Ilan University, Israel.


A short bio of Dr. Grinberg:

Prof. Ilya Grinberg received his B.A. from Columbia University and his Ph.D. in physical chemistry from University of Pennsylvania. During his research career, he has worked on computational modeling and design of new materials, with a particular focus on the properties of oxides enabled by the presence of ferroelectricity. He has studied the relationships between the composition, structure and properties of complex oxides using computational quantum mechanical and atomistic modeling and crystal chemical concepts and has revealed how complex behavior of materials arises from their local interactions. This demonstrates that compositional variations in properties of these materials are predictable and understandable in terms of local structure and properties of individual atoms. He has also developed new atomistic potentials for complex oxides enabling ~1,000,000 atom molecular dynamics simulations of response and dynamics.
