Welcome to the Kumar Group

Computational chemistry is playing an increasingly important role in the design and application of new materials. Computer simulations act as virtual experiments allowing one to study complex systems at the atomic/molecular level. Such studies provide important insights into reaction mechanisms and allow one to inexpensively screen candidates for new materials with desired properties.

The Kumar group is involved in computational investigations of complex chemical systems. Our research interests include electrolytes for energy storage and novel next generation materials.
