I am an electron wandering in a computer generated field.

Okay, seriously, my name’s Chengcheng Xiao. I’m currently a PhD candidate @ Imperal College London.

👋 Nice to meet you!

Research Interests

My research area include (subject to expand at any moment):

  • 🧱 2D materials.
  • 💻 Density functional theory methods.
