We use state-of-the-art computational approaches to predict new materials and develop novel strategies to modulate materials properties. Our work has impacts on a wide variety of advanced manufacturing technologies including energy, environment and electronics.
|Our research in this theme aims to discover and design novel materials that contribute to the development of:
Our researchers study materials properties in:
From the ERA (Excellence in Research for Australia) we received a 5 (well above world standard) in theoretical and computational chemistry, condensed matter physics and materials engineering. We also received a 4 (above world standard) in mechanical engineering, physical chemistry (including structural chemistry) and organic chemistry.
