Research Initiatives

The Pavanello group specializes in the development of electronic structure methods based on Density-Functional Theory (DFT). We use our methods to model an array of phenomena relevant to chemistry and
materials research, with emphasis on dynamics of heat, charge, and electronic excitation energy across material's interfaces and biosystems.
