Cyrus Dreyer earned a B.S. in Engineering Science and Physics, and a B.A. in Mathematics
from the University of Virginia. He earned a Ph.D. in Materials from the University
of California, Santa Barbara, and then was a postdoctoral associate at Rutgers University.
In addition to his position at Stony Brook, he is an associate research scientist
at the Flatiron Institute Center for Computational Quantum Physics.
The Dreyer group develops and implements first-principles techniques base on density
functional theory to determine the properties of electronic materials. Our approach
is to combine basic theories of condensed matter and materials physics with modern
first-principles implementations to explore materials and device properties, either
to explain observed behavior, or predict new materials or device designs.
