Multiscale Modeling for Rational Design of Catalyst Nanoparticles
University of Texas at Dallas
Dr. Cho is an Associate Professor of Physics and Electrical Engineering (Materials Science and Engineering Program). Before joining UT Dallas in 2006, Dr. Cho was an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering at Stanford University.
Dr. Cho’s research interest is computational modeling study of nanomaterials with applications to nanoelectronic devices and renewable energy technology. For materials modeling study, his research group has developed atomistic modeling method to simulate atomic structures of nanomaterials and tight binding method to calculate electronic structures and quantum transport properties of nanoelectronic devices. Advanced first principles quantum simulations methods (density functional theory) are used to investigate the nanomaterials with quantitative accuracy and fundamental understanding of structure-property relationship.
