Ivan Naumov’s research interests are in theoretical modeling and understanding of real materials with considerable fundamental and/or technological relevance. Using first-principles density functional methods, ab-initio derived Hamiltonian approach coupled with Monte-Carlo simulations, and other techniques, he explores a broad array of structural, electronic, vibrational, and transport properties of materials such as ferroelectrics, superconductors, shape-memory alloys and graphene-based nanostructures.
