About John Jaszczak

My research focuses on theory and computer modeling of materials. I'm currently working on single-electron transistor devices, in collaboration with the experimental groups of Dr. Y. K. Yap (Physics) and Dr. Paul Bergstrom (Electrical and Computer Engineering). I also study materials in which interfaces, such as surfaces, grain boundaries, or interphase boundaries, play an important role. I use a collection of simulation methods including Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics, as well as numerical and analytical techniques. I am also interested in the elastic properties of superlattices, phase transitions at surfaces, crystal shapes, crystal growth, and nanotechnology education.
