To achieve the improved sustainability through the development of renewable and clean energy source, it is required to understand the operational mechanism of the complex materials and systems of renewable energy systems to improve their own properties. However, such materials or systems often consist complicated “Multiscale/Multiphysics” natures characterized by energy inter-conversion processes, sequential electron transportation, subtle balance of thermodynamic driving forces, ill-defined structural characteristics, etc.

Therefore, our group aims to explore Multiscale/Multiphysics natures of complex material processes to unveil the underlying mechanisms, predict, and design the material structures for the renewable energy systems. Toward this goal, we develop and integrate current cutting-edge simulation methods such as density functional theory, molecular dynamics simulations, various reactive and non-reactive force fields, finite difference methods, etc.
