Teaching

Undergraduate and graduate levels

Research

Atomistic Computer Simulations of Materials using molecular dynamics (MS), molecular static (MS), and Monte-Carlo (MC) techniques. Currently I have two active projects: 1. Crack propagation in brittle materials using MD and MS 2. Bulk and surface properties of quasi-crystals

Recent Publications

Molecular dynamics simulations of brittle fracture in fcc crystalline materials in the presence of defects

Diffusion, adsorption, and desorption of molecular hydrogen on graphene and in graphite

Ordering and growth of rare gas films (Xe, Kr, Ar, and Ne) on the pseudo-ten-fol quasicrystalline approximant Al13Co4(100) surface
