R&D Staff Member

Dr. Panchapakesan Ganesh is a Research and Development Staff Member in the Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. His research is at the intersection of theoretical condensed matter physics, theoretical chemistry, computational material science, high-performance computing and data-analytics. Broadly, his research involves gaining fundamental insights into the role of defects and disorder in energy materials, electronic materials, correlated- and topological quantum-materials as well as designing new improved materials using these insights for various applications. A complete list of publications and current interests/projects/collaborators is available at his ORNL home page: Home page: http://web.ornl.gov/~g5q/Home.html He received his Ph. D from the Physics Department at Carnegie Mellon University in 2007. Prior to joining ORNL in 2010, he was a Carnegie postdoctoral fellow in the Geophysical Laboratory at the Carnegie Institution for Science.
