Complex Systems

Stress field of a dislocation system

We study complex dynamical processes in materials by combining computational and statistical physics, materials science, and machine learning. We are especially interested in non-equilibrium collective phenomena in disordered materials, such as the critical-like avalanche dynamics occurring in various driven systems. Example systems and phenomena of interest include domain wall dynamics in ferromagnets, crack propagation in solids, and plastic deformation of crystals.
