Research Interests

Thermoelectric materials are one of the great bets for a clean source of energy, it converts heat energy to electrical energy based on the temperature gradient phenomenon. My research focus here is by the use of DFT codes to calculate the Seebeck coefficient, electronic and thermal transport to apprehend this phenomenon in a 2D system.
