Arash Mostofi is Reader in Theory and Simulation of Materials in the Departments of Materials and Physics at Imperial College London. He is the Director of the Centre for Doctoral Training on Theory and Simulation of Materials, and Director of the Thomas Young Centre at Imperial College London.
Arash's research is dedicated to the development and application of first-principles modelling tools for the theory and simulation of materials. He is an original author and developer of two major electronic structure simulation codes, ONETEP and Wannier90, used by hundreds of researchers worldwide. His research interests include defects and interfaces in semiconductors, electron transport in nanowires and nanotubes, and the structure and properties of perovskite oxide thin films.
