Dr. D. Murali

Faculty of Physics.

Education: PhD, Indira Gandhi Center for Atomic Research (IGCAR), Kalpakkam, India

Research interest:

I work in the area of computational condensed matter and my current area of research is to use ab-initio electronic structure calculations to model real physical behavior of materials for various applications. Presently I work on variety of applications including photovoltaic effect in perovskite based solar cells, phonon transport, solid oxide fuel cells, nanostructure evolution in structural materials, etc.
