Research Interests

First-principles studies on Thermoelectrics (BiCuSeO, GeTe, etc.)

First-principles studies on mixed anions

Discovering new materials using High-Throughput DFT calculations

Current Research

Jiahong's current research focuses on discovering new mixed anion materials. Due to the absence of two anions compounds, the state-of-the-art High-Throughput DFT calculations provide an efficient way to unveil the secret in these compounds. Mixed anion materials have a wide range of potential applications (e.g. BiCuSeO for its thermoelectric application), and thus are of general interest for both theoretical and experimental research.
