Welcome to the homepage of the Solid State Electronic Structure Group, led by Dr. David Payne in the Department of Materials, Imperial College London. In the menu above you can find information relating to the many different aspects of the research that is performed in the group.
We focus on materials discovery through synthesis, and are starting to explore the opportunities that machine-learning can offer. We are principally interested in oxides, although will explore interesting physics and chemistry in any material!
We are always looking for enthusiastic scientists and engineers to join our group! And I am always delighted to hear from undergraduate students, post-graduates, post-doctoral research associates and visiting researchers about any opportunities to join us in discovering new materials. Please see the “Join Us” section in the menu above, or email me directly.
