High-pressure Nitrides and Hydrides

My research aims understanding the structural, electronic and dynamical properties of hydrides and nitrides with promising functionalities at high-pressure and to ways of  preserving their stability and properties to ambient conditions. In order to understand underlaying mechanisms leading to structural stability and functionalities at a given pressure and temperature condition, I  use density-functional-theory based computations in collaboration with experimental colleagues employing nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and X-ray diffraction experiments.
