Research Interests

Research of Metal Alloys by ab-initio Methods (Currently Mg Alloys):

Ab-initio methods are very powerful tools to study metal alloys, especially during recent years when computer speed becomes faster and faster and the chips become cheaper and cheaper. Within the frame of ab-initio methods we can get the physical and chemical properties of materials in a faster and cheaper way compared with experiment..

Project Outline

Direct and inverse combinatorial materials design, aimed at ductile of Mg-based multi-component alloys employing ab-initio methods.
