\ Cyrus E. Dreyer

I am a postdoctoral associate in the Theoretical Condensed Matter group in the department of Physics and Astronomy at Rutgers University, working with David Vanderbilt and Karin Rabe. My research involves developing and implementing first-principles methods based on density functional theory to explore materials for electronic and optoelectronic devices. My interests include group III-nitrides, novel ferroelectric materials, complex oxides and their heterostructures, applications of the modern theory of polarization, point defects in semiconductors, and flexoelectricity.

For more information, see my CV.

Also, a short talk I gave on light-emitting diodes and a seminar on Shockley-Read-Hall recombination.
