  • First Principles thermodynamics of binary alloys.
  • Electrical, thermal and optical response in binary alloys
      disordered systems.
    • Development of a Density Functional theory for excited states in disordered solids.
    • Study of transition and noble metal and bimetallic clusters. Catalysis, band-gap engineering
    • Study of electronic transmission through nanowires.
