A Next Generation Synthesis Center (GENESIS)


John Parise

Lead Institution

Stony Brook University




To develop a new paradigm for synthesis that accelerates the discovery of functional materials by integrating advanced in situ diagnostics and data science tools to interrogate, predict, and control the pathways that govern synthesis and lead to new materials.

Research Topics

mesoscale science, materials and chemistry by design, synthesis (predictive)

Systems Studied

Systems: metal, oxide

Interfaces: solid/solid

Nanostructured: None

Experimental and Theoretical Methods

X-ray diffraction and scattering, X-ray spectroscopy, neutron diffraction and scattering, high-throughput screening methods, density functional theory (DFT), continuum modeling, mesoscale modeling, machine learning, data science
