All my work involves using first principles (density functional theory or DFT) calculations to
investigate various (structural, electronic, magnetic and catalytic) properties of low-
dimensional materials. More specifically, I am interested in magnetism and spintronics of
low-dimensional (2D) materials. My recent studies focus on 2D van-der-Waals (vdW) magnets whose
magnetic properties can be tailored by applying small external perturbations. These 2D vdW
magnets have recently gained tremendous attention due to their tunable magnetic properties
which make them potential candidates in the application of spintronic devices. My aim is to
investigate the mechanisms responsible for magnetic transition in 2D materials by applying
external perturbations, e.g., strain, electrostatic gating (doping with different types of
impurities), external electric field and proximity effects induced by other 2D materials.
I use density functional theory to study the electronic and magnetic properties, including the
spin textures of the 2D vdW magnets and their heterostructures with nonmagnetic materials with strong spin-orbit coupling and interesting topological properties.
