Research Summary

Professor Stixrude's research program seeks to understand large-scale planetary processes through investigations of the fundamental atomic-scale physics of Earth- and planet-forming materials. We use a variety of methods based on first principles quantum mechanical theory including density functional theory. Fields of interests include mineral physics, Earth and planetary liquids and fluids, condensed matter physics, high pressure physics, planetary structure and evolution.
