Current Research

  • Assistant Professor Quek’s group uses first principles approaches to make predictions on the electronic structure, vibrational properties, and transport properties of materials. They use state-of-the-art methods to understand the physical mechanisms governing macroscopic observables. Based on these studies, simpler predictive models are often developed. They have recently focused on research involving emerging 2D materials and organics.
