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 approach to material design and, for the past couple of years, I have been working toward developing inverse (and hybrid) methods and their applications to design complex semiconducting and metallic glasses. The 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.
