Research Interest:

  • Seismology Geology and Tectonophysics
  • Computational Materials
  • Molecular Dynamics
  • First Principles calculations
  • Materials at extreme conditions
  • Earth and Planetary Science, modeling


I am using the PGM framework developed in my team to investigate ε-Fe at the conditions of the Earth's core, which is also applicable for exoplanetary interiors' conditions.

POSTER DEMO
What I've Researched

Computational Materials & Geoscience: ε-Fe at Exoplanetary Conditions

Research Assistant @ Columbia University, LDEO

Mar. 2018 - Present

  • Performed first-principles calculations in earth inner-core and explanatory conditions on high-performance computers.
  • Proposed a temperature-dependent phonon gas model (TPGM)
  • Developed a novel Python framework for derivations of thermodynamic and thermoelastic properties
  • Investigated computational and experimental thermodynamic properties to confirm the good performance of results
  • Calculated Mass-Radius relation to model the iron-dominant planetary interiors

Study of Variable Cell Molecular Dynamics

Research Assistant @ Columbia University

Jan. 2018 - Mar. 2018

  • Developed a novel Python framework for derivations of thermodynamic and thermoelastic properties.
  • Implemented microcanonical MD simulation using velocity rescaling to equilibrate FCC-Ne at finite temperatures
  • Optimized the structures of FCC, BCC, HCP Ne in varied pressures, calculated corresponding equations of state and bulk modulus for each structure, and the phase diagram below 10 GPa.
