Climate processes

Our research addresses physical climate processes in the context of anthropogenic perturbations to the Earth system as the underlying cause of climate change with an overall focus on the role of clouds and aerosols.

Computational Condensed Matter Physics Group

We use and develop upon first principles computational modeling methods such as density functional theory and many-body perturbation theory to understand and predict structural, vibrational, electronic, optical and transport properties of materials.

Earth Observation Data Group

The principal focus of EODG is the retrieval of atmospheric properties (e.g. temperature, pressure, trace gas concentrations, aerosol and cloud properties) from data gathered by Earth Observing satellites.
A VUV sub-micron hotspot for photoemission spectroscopy

Electronic structures and photoemission spectroscopy

Our research focuses on understanding the behavior of electrons in unconventional materials. We also develop advanced instrumentation that will drive the exploration of critical information on condensed matter systems with new degrees of freedom.
