We are engaged in theory and modeling of materials using a spectrum of computational methods, including electronic structure, molecular dynamics, machine learning, as well as our own algorithms. Our recent work has four primary directions:. Innovation of monolayer and few layer materials i. Machine learning to predict materials properties, including for batteries and other energy technologies.
During their first year in the program, students typically engage in coursework and seminars which prepare them for the Qualifying Examinations. In addition, students must satisfactorily complete a course sequence during their first or second year. This can be fulfilled in one of the following ways:. By the end of Spring Quarter of their second year in the program, students must have a dissertation advisor and apply for Candidacy. During their third year, students will sit for their Area Examination, which must be completed by the end of Winter Quarter. The Area Examination is also used as an opportunity for the student to present his or her committee with a summary of research conducted to date as well as a detailed plan for the remaining research.
See the Registrar's COVID and Academic Continuity page for information for students, faculty, and staff relevant to classes and academic activities and administration.

The Ph. Students specialize in various fields within Economics by enrolling in field courses and attending field specific lunches and seminars. Students gain economic breadth by taking additional distribution courses outside of their selected fields of interest. Students are required to complete 1 quarter of teaching experience. Teaching experience includes teaching assistantships within the Economics department or another department.
