Introduction of the Lab/ Research Field
The Computational Materials Lab is led by Professor Yizhou Zhu at School of Engineering in Westlake University. Our research focus on using computation to understand, discover, design and engineering advanced materials. By using various computational tools, including first principles computation, molecular dynamics simulation, high-throughput computation, machine learning etc., we aim to provide fundamental understanding about the structure-property relationship of materials science, and propose strategies to design and engineer functional materials. We collaborate closely with leading experimental research groups at the Westlake University and across the world.
The current research focuses of our group include: understanding and engineering of point defects in inorganic materials, interface engineering in all-solid-state batteries; design of high entropy materials etc.
