We are a theory & computations group at SUNY, Buffalo. Our research revolves around the following main themes:
- understanding fundamental aspects of quantum
- making the quantum dynamics techniques applicable to large-scale
- gaining mechanistic insights into operation of solar
energy materials (photovoltaics, photocatalytics, etc.) via application of quantum simulations to atomistic models representing

Graduate student openings:
At this point, there are opportunities for several graduate students to
start their thesis work with me.
There is no specific qualification requirement apart from your good
self-motivation, readiness and willingness to learn new techniques and good organizational skills. Good math and programming
preparation is a plus. Students inclined toward mathematical, physical, and computer sciences are encouraged to apply.
If you are interested in joining the group or just curious about the research
going on in the group, feel free to contact me via email,
or stop by my office (NSC 716). Please keep in mind that you must be officially enrolled in graduate program at the University, before you can join
the group officially. Nonetheless, the initial contact with the PI is always encouraged.
Postdoctoral position openings:
At this point, no postdoctoral positions are open.
We always welcome applicants with their own funding. If you are interested in
a joint Ph.D. between your institution and UB, if you apply for a scholarship and is looking for a host institution, or if you are
interested in visiting our group to learn new techniques (especially related to the Libra
codes we develop), please don't hesitate to
contact me via email.
