Andrea Hwang

Ph.D. Student

I received my bachelor’s in materials science and engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, where I worked on first-principles calculations of materials for quantum computing with Professor Noa Marom. In the past, I have interned at IBM Research–Almaden, where I performed experimental research on Heusler alloys for spintronic applications. I have also participated in a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program at Northwestern University, where I did research in computational soft matter with Professor Erik Luijten.

At Berkeley as a PhD student, I will focus on ab-initio and molecular dynamic simulations of materials. I am currently working on computationally modelling molten salt interfaces as part of the FUTURE-ERFC project.
