Dr. Tianyu Zhu

I am a theoretical chemist working on electronic structure theories for molecular systems, solid-state materials, and molecule-solid interfaces. I obtained my B.S. in Chemical Physics from University of Science and Technology of China in 2013, and my Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from MIT under the guidance of Prof. Troy Van Voorhis in 2018. I am currently a postdoctoral researcher working with Prof. Garnet Kin-Lic Chan at Caltech, and will be joining the Department of Chemistry at Yale University as an Assistant Professor starting from January 2022.
