Theory, modeling, and simulations of the growth mechanisms and physical/chemical properties of surface-based nanomaterials. Specific recent systems include quantum wires, two-dimensional materials (graphene, transition metal dichalcogenides, and topological insulators) and their (vertical or lateral) heterostructures, and solar cell materials. The related properties include electronic, excitonic, magnetic, spintronic, and catalytic properties.
