Experience πŸ”¬

Apr'19-Apr'22 Postdoc @ QuTech Delft university of technology NL πŸ‡³πŸ‡±

I researched a stack of machine learning tools: deep neural networks DNN, generative models (reverse Monte-Carlo, RMC), adversarial attack approaches in the context of electronic structure/nanoscale atomic dynamics. I developed a DNN/atomic descriptor code for nanoscale dynamics miniff. I used python to investigate large material datasets to find novel electronic structure effects.

Jul'17-Mar'19 Postdoc @ Caltech US πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

I developed and implemented a computational many-body quantum chemistry framework to model two-dimensional crystalline materials. I investigated low-energy spectral properties of two-dimensional molybdenum disulphide with numerical modeling using massive computational infrastructure.

Oct'12-Apr'17 Doctoral assistant @ EPFL CH πŸ‡¨πŸ‡­

I carried out a scientific project in the quantum materials modelling domain. I discovered a new class of electronic band structure effects in two-dimensional semiconductors. I collaborated with world-leading experimental groups to prove my findings experimentally.
