Eva Zurek is a Professor in the Department of Chemistry at the University at Buffalo. Professor Zurek uses theoretical and computational methods to study the electronic structures of molecules and solids, with a particular interest in predicting the compositions and structures of stable phases at high pressures through structure search and optimization algorithms. She has played a leading role in the development of the XtalOpt code for crystal structure prediction.
Professor Zurek's research group contributes to CDAC Science Thrust 3: Complex Materials, Thrust 4: Extreme Chemistry and Thrust 7: Superconductivity and Electronic and Magnetic Phenomena.
