The research interest in my group is mostly concerned with the theory of disordered systems and modeling complex materials incorporating a broad range of topics from electronic structure of amorphous materials, and Anderson localization in quasiperiodic and disordered systems to multi-objective optimization problems in mathematical physics. I am particularly fascinated by information-theoretic approaches to material design and, for the past couple of years, have been working toward developing inverse (and hybrid) methods and their applications to design complex semiconducting and metallic glasses. Other areas of my interest include bio-inspired computation to hard optimization problems, computational geometry and its applications to disordered systems, and classical-moment problems via maximum-entropy optimizations.
