Curriculum Vitae. (Last updated: 2022 Jun 17)

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.

Research Statement
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.
