High-pressure Nitrides and Hydrides

My research aims at understanding structural, electronic and dynamical properties of hydrides and nitrides with promising functionalities at high-pressure and finding ways to preserve their stability and properties to ambient conditions.

In order to understand underlaying mechanisms leading to structureal 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 (XRD) experiments.
