First-principles calculations, statistical mechanical properties of metal aluminides, Monte Carlo and Molecular Dynamics techniques
Dr. Rasamny’s main research areas of interest include first principles and other (both formal and computational) approaches to electronic, magnetic and structural properties of condensed matter systems. He has worked on understanding binary alloy phase diagrams using a combinations of first-principles calculations and statistical mechanics. Dr. Rasamny has been engaged in development of parallel computational first-principles techniques to study defects and other properties of Ni-Al and Pd based systems; the later with particular emphasis on improving catalytic properties. He has interest in developing quality interatomic potentials from first-principles calculations for use in molecular dynamics calculations to study large complex systems. Dr. Rasamny has designed and taught parallel processing and compiler courses at Delaware State University. He has taught operations research, computer organization, principles of programming languages, scripting, and data structures and algorithms.
