Ab initio studies of nano-bio hybrid systems, with focus either on the nanomaterial (such as in DNA-wrapped nanotubes) or on the biomolecule (such as in nanopore-based DNA sequencing). Furthermore, investigating metal hydrides, both for fundamental physics interests (pressure-induced metallization and superconductivity) as well as for potentially useful applications (hydrogen storage under ambient conditions).
