Current Research

Haihui's research focuses on the first principles/molecular dynamics simulations and statistical thermodynamics modelings on the novel two dimensional nanomaterials for environment and energy applications. These include the field effect transistor nanosensors for detecting various targets of interest (e.g., gases, heavy metal ions, bacteria, proteins, and viruses), and energy storage devices (e.g., electrochemical fuel cells and batteries).
