Efthimios Kaxiras was educated at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he received a BS in Physics and a PhD in theoretical condensed matter physics. He joined the faculty of Harvard University in 1991 where he is currently the John Hasbrouck Van Vleck Professor of Pure and Applied Physics. He holds joint appointments in the Department of Physics and in Applied Physics at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and is an Affiliate of the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology. He is the Founding Director of the Institute for Applied Computational Science.... Read more about Efthimios Kaxiras
Wei Chen is a postdoctoral fellow in Prof. Kaxiras’s group. He is currently working on the heterogeneous catalysis of metals and metal oxides, as well as the novel properties of two-dimensional systems, including graphene and FeSe based superconductors.... Read more about Wei Chen
Grigory studies non-adiabatic dynamics on surfaces and interfaces in photo-catalytic and other contexts. He is also developing methodology and code for simulating non-adiabatic excited-state dynamics in large systems using time-dependent density functional theory.
Marios Mattheakis is interested in applied optics. In particular, EM wave propagation through ordered and random networks,Surface plasmon polaritons on gain/loss as well as on 2D materials interfaces, Integrated photonic and plasmonic circuits, Photonic and plasmonic meta-materials....
