Expertise
Computational condensed matter physics. This involves modeling the physical and chemical properties of technological materials - from molecules and clusters (small aggregates of atoms) to solids.
Courses Taught
Quantum Mechanics, University Physics II
Research Interests
The goal of Dr. Srinivas's research is to understand, at a microscopic level, the origin of the properties that make these materials useful in present and future technologies. Among the current research projects underway are first-principles investigations of (i) the interactions of metal clusters with molecules - with the aim of understanding catalytic properties of certain metals; and (ii) physical and thermal properties of small metal clusters.
