Dr. Han’s research interests focus on theory, modeling and simulations of materials. Principally he works on the thermodynamics and kinetics of defects in crystalline materials, such as point defects, dislocations and interfaces, and the implications on the mechanical properties of polycrystals. His research approach is multiscale, including molecular statics/dynamics, (kinetic) Monte Carlo, and continuum models.

Research Interests/Areas

  • Thermodynamics and kinetics of defects; dislocations, interfaces and triple junctions
  • Mechanical properties of materials and the underlying mechanisms
  • Irradiation damage in polycrystals
  • Molecular dynamics; classical/kinetic Monte Carlo simulations; topological framework for local structure analysis
