My research addresses structural, magnetic, and transport properties of novel materials with an eye toward practical applications. This is done by calculating the properties of real materials using first-principles computational techniques and testing the results by neutron scattering, x-ray and other measurements. Systems of particular interest include molecular solids such as the fullerenes and cubane, nanoporous materials such as metal-organic frameworks for hydrogen storage, frustrated magnetic systems such as the Kagome lattice and cuprates, novel superconductors such as doped fullerenes and magnesium diboride, and nanomaterials such as nanotubes and molecular magnets.
