Materials Project


I work in computational materials design.

Most of my past research was related to discovering new cathodes for better Li ion batteries. Currently, I am a lead developer of the Materials Project, an effort to compute the properties of all known materials and beyond. I write a blog, Hacking Materials, which discusses the forefront of computational materials science. I am the main developer of the FireWorks software package for programming dynamic scientific workflows and executing them on supercomputing resources.

I'm also interested in photography, music composition, and many other things!

I have several hobbies that are various degrees of embarrassing. These include photography, music composition (which I stopped doing after college), and spending a summer reviewing pizza places in Berkeley. I am also interested in graphic design (I designed the logos for all the projects on this page).
