Subhasish Mandal

I am a computational/theoretical condensed matter physicist and a postdoc at Rutgers CMT group, working under the supervision of Profs. David Vanderbilt, Karin Rabe, and Kristjan Haule. Previously, I was a Yale-IBM postdoc in the Department of Applied Physics at Yale University. My research is mostly based on the first principles approaches using high-performance computations. I try to understand the behavior of electrons in different classes of quantum materials like high-temperature superconductors (Fe-based), topological insulators, ferroelectrics, nano-scale devices, two-dimensional materials by predicting their electronic, magnetic, optical, and structural properties. To capture the physics of a wide range of phenomena and materials, I use various theories and computations ranging from the density functional theory (DFT) to GW to the dynamical mean-field theory (DMFT). Most of my recent works are based on methodologies that go beyond the limit of conventional DFT. My database for correlated materials using various beyond-DFT methods is hosted at NIST and could be found HERE.
