Research Focus

Lower mantle mineral studies

Jan 2022 - Present

First part: study the post-perovskite transition in Fe- and Al-bearing bridgmanite from DFT + U. Final target: organize ab initio results and engage in packages and database.

Spin Crossover in Ferropericlase in the Earth's Lower Mantle from LDA + USC Calculations

Apr 2021 - Present

The pressure- and temperature-induced high spin (HS) to low spin (LS) crossover of Fe2+ ions in ferropericlase (Fp), Mg(1-x)FexO, affects various mantle properties. We present results from a free energy model that goes beyond the ideal HS-LS solid solution framework.

pgm: Python package for phonon gas model

Jun 2020 - Apr 2022

A useful tool to compute thermodynamic properties at extreme conditions, i.e., high temperature or pressure, by addressing effects: anharmonicity, electronic thermal excitations. Examples: ε-Fe, CaPv.
