Computational Nanomaterials Laboratory

Welcome to the Computational Nanomaterials Laboratory at UMass Amherst. We are a young research group lead by Ashwin Ramasubramaniam, Assistant Professor in Mechanical and Industrial Engineering and Adjunct Faculty in Chemical Engineering. Our group members come from diverse backgrounds, but our overarching interests lie in using computational methods to probe materials at length scales ranging from the nano- to macroscale. Our primary tools are density functional theory, empirical potential methods, and continuum mechanics-based models (with the occasional paper-and-pencil theory too). Some of our recent and past activities are...Read More
