Research Interests:

The principal area of my research is concerned with the theory of disordered systems and the modeling of complex materials incorporating a broad range of topics from electronic structure of amorphous solids, and Anderson localization in quasiperiodic and disordered systems to multi‐objective optimization problems in physics.

Research Interests:

  • Materials design as inverse problems
  • Maximum entropy in Electronic Structure of materials
  • Classical moment problems and its applications
  • Diffusion in zeolites and disordered materials
  • Fast ionic conduction in complex glasses
  • Swarm intelligence
