I am a PhD candidate working on electronic structure and transport in two-dimensional materials including transition metal dichalcogenides, graphene, and boron nitride. The methods I employ include density functional theory as implemented in VASP and OpenMX, empirical tight-binding models, and non-equilibrium Green functions (NEGF). I am supervised by Prof. Roger K. Lake in the LAboratory for Terascale and Terahertz Electronics(LATTE).

Tasked with providing electronic band structures, Landau level energies, and resistivity for tetralayer graphene using the electronic structure calculated from a tight-binding model as input into the Boltzmann transport equation within a relaxation time approximation.
Found that the electron and hole resistivities differed by several orders of magnitude depending on the rotation angle, and how this property could be exploited in the design of a high-frequency bipolar junction transistor or heterostructure bipolar transistor.
Benchmarked the performance of OpenMX to calculate electron transport for several systems with large computing requirement.
Developed quantum control techniques in NMR systems, including optimization of the Gradient Ascent Pulse Engineering algorithm (GRAPE).
