Research interests: Theory of condensed matter physics; density functional theory; ab initio modeling of the electronic, magnetic, structural properties of materials of scientific and technological interest: electrodes for rechargeable batteries, transition-metal complex oxides (e.g., multiferroics), magnetic systems, materials for organic and inorganic photovoltaics, heterogeneous catalysis, minerals of the Earth’s interior. Development of new energy functionals for the efficient modeling of systems characterized by strong electronic localization and important correlation effects; interface of DFT with model Hamiltonian and their solutions; self-interaction-free functionals; calculation of important properties (e.g., vibrational or XAS/XANES spectra, NMR/EPR quantities) from strongly localized (and possibly correlated) ground states.
