Shizhong Yang
Assistant Professor/Computational Scientist
Department of Computer Science/LONI Institute
Room 140, T. T. Allain Hall
Southern University and A & M College


Dr. Shizhong Yang obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Missouri-Kansas City in Computational Surface Physics, with a co-discipline in Electrical Computer Engineering. Dr. Yang's research interests are high performance computation algorithm and high speed network, ab initio plane wave and full potential material simulation: doped C60 and CNT, electronic structure of graphene and device application, ab initio MD code design and simulation on nano-materials: Cr and Nb based high temperature alloys and oxidation, thermal barrier coating design and simulation, ligand(protein)/protein docking and MD simulation, GW and quantum Monte-Carlo method and application in material simulation, STM, SEM, AFM, XPS, ESR, DLTS material testing. In LA-SiGMA he will study the catalytic mechanism of the oxygen reduction reaction at nitrogen-doped CNTs using DFT-MD method.
