Welcome to the Galli Group
Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering, the University of Chicago
We develop and use theoretical and computational methods to understand, predict, and engineer material properties from first principles.
We investigate solids, liquids, and nanostructures in addition to physical and chemical processes relevant to solar energy conversion, water resources, and quantum information technologies.
