Research Interests

Berk's research interests broadly lie on developing computational methods and modeling approaches using first principle calculations, molecular dynamics and machine learning to understand the nature of the materials in multi-scales. He is working with Dr James Kermode within NOMAD Center of Excellence on materials informatics. His current works are based on extending the capabilities of the NOMAD repository to harvest the data from various classical molecular dynamics codes and developing machine learning tools to analyze the resulting data.

Interatomic Potentials

Access my OpenKIM developer site

See my profile on the OpenKIM Directory of Interatomic Model Developers.

The Open Knowledgebase of Interatomic Models (OpenKIM) includes a repository of interatomic potentials that are exhaustively tested, tools to help select among existing potentials and develop new ones, and standard integration methods for using potentials in major simulation codes.
