Sanjubala Sahoo, Ph.D.

Education: Ph.D. Physics, University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany, 2011

Bio: Before Sanjubala joined the research group in March 2016 as a post-doctoral research associate and later becoming a research scientist in 2020, she was a post-doctoral appointee at the Argonne National Laboratory in the Chemical Sciences and Engineering division. Later, she worked as a research assistant professor at Virginia Commonwealth University in the Physics Department. Her expertise is in modelling of fundamental material properties using a combination of first-principles methodologies such as density functional theory and wave function-based quantum chemical tools.

Current Research: Exploring materials and their properties in a multi-scale regime using first-principles modeling. Physics and chemistry of surfaces, catalysis and magnetism
