The Pereverzev group conducts theoretical and computational studies of material properties starting from first principles. Currently, our research focuses on energy transport in solids, microscopic theory of elasticity, and polymorphic phase transitions. We welcome students with an interest in theoretical physical chemistry, materials science, and physics to join us.
