​With the fast advance of computational capability, the first-principles method without adjustable parameter has been widely used to study various materials and obtained satisfying results. Li Yang is interested in applying this powerful tool to study the electronic structure and optical response of solids and design novel functional materials. 

Specific areas of interest include photovoltaic materials, silicon and carbon based nanostructures, and the electronic structure and optical properties of transition metal oxides.
