Dr. Tong Zhu


Tong Zhu received his Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering & Materials Science from Duke University in 2019 under the supervision of Prof. Volker Blum. Afterwards, he joined Sargent group as a postdoctoral fellow in 2020. His research interest includes structure, electronic, optical and defect properties of materials based on first principle DFT and machine learning. He is now working at machine-learned Kohn-Sham solver which benefits for large-scale and high-throughput calculations.
