Proposed research ideas:

1. Artificial intelligence for materials design and discovery to push the limits of heat conduction for thermal energy harvesting, storage, and management 2. Understand interfacial thermal transport using advanced atomistic-level simulations 3. Multiscale simulations of thermal phonon transport from first-principles for hierarchical structures. 4. Optimizing the device and system performance of thermal energy converter and microelectronics cooling


Build the connection with computing research staff at Berkeley lab, foster collaboration, and leverage the cutting-edge computational resources and tools at Berkeley lab and my expertise in nanoscale thermal transport to push the research frontiers in computational thermal science and engineering
