Bryce Meredig

Research Interests

Bryce's work consists of two main areas: 1) predicting the atomic structure of materials from first principles; and 2) investigating materials used for solar thermochemical fuel production.
A crystal structure prediction for Eu(AlH4)2.

Current Research

Bryce is currently working on developing new crystal structure prediction methods and on characterizing dopant properties in zirconia.


Outside of science, Bryce performs improvisational theatre, contributes to technology commercialization, and practices Zen.
