Dr. Yi-Shen Lin is a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Physics & Astronomy. His main research interests are in the field of computational condensed matter physics with focus on electronic structure computation based on density functional theory (DFT) and development of interatomic potentials and their application. Dr. Lin has several publications over various aspects of condensed matter physics with emphasis on metallic systems. These include understanding the relation of the electronic structure and deformation properties of a variety of B2 compounds, development of interatomic potential for various BCC transition metals, including technologically important Fe, and study of dislocations behaviors in these BCC metals. Dr. Lin has given several talks regarding his works at many international conferences. He is currently working with Dr. Yuri Mishin’s group.
