Eric Isaacs is a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Northwestern University. He received his Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Columbia University in 2016 as a Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE CSGF) recipient. He completed his DOE CSGF practicum in 2013 at Brookhaven National Laboratory, where he studied the electronic properties of semiconductor-supported nanoparticles for photocatalytic water splitting. In his research, Eric employs electronic structure calculations in combination with materials informatics to discover, design and understand new materials for energy technologies such as batteries, solar cells and thermoelectrics. His interests also include strongly correlated electron systems, two-dimensional materials and high-performance computing.
