Research Interests

I am interested in accelerating materials discovery by using machine learning-assisted atomistic simulations. In particular, my current research is in using neural networks to train classical models of molecular dynamics interatomic potentials. Material systems I am currently interested in include plastic crystals for solid-state refrigerants and novel solid polymer electrolytes. I am also interested in advanced sampling, free energy and entropy calculations using molecular simulations, and active learning.
