We aim to understand the beauty of physics in realistic materials by performing ab initio materials simulations and developing new methods to reveal novel phenomena. By the materials design, we aim to bridge the gap between the theoretical concept and the experimental realization. Our recent research is focused on the design and prediction of topological materials, for example, topological insulators, topological Dirac and Weyl semimetals, and investigate topology-induced phenomena.

Bright and energetic M.Sc and Ph.D. students and Postdocs are always welcome.
