Background and activities
I am currently working as a postdoctoral fellow in the research group Functional Materials and Materials Chemistry (FACET) research group. My current research work is centered around the understanding of structural, mobility, and electrical transport properties of domain walls of ferroelectric materials using Density Functional Theory (DFT).
Main Advisor: Prof. Sverre M. Selbach
My Ph.D. was a part of a large project working on Sustainable Innovation for Automated Manufacturing of Multi-Material Products-SFI Manufacturing. I completed my Ph.D. thesis titled “Atomistic modeling of Fe-Al and α-AlFeSi intermetallic compound interfaces” at the Department of Material Science and Engineering, NTNU Trondheim under the supervision of Prof. Are Strandlie (NTNU). During my Ph.D., I worked on the Atomistic modeling of Fe-Al interfaces for the joining aluminum and steel applications. Especially, I worked on the prediction of mechanical strengths of the Fe-Al compounds and interfaces observed at the joints of aluminum and steel using Density functional theory calculations.
