Welcome to the M^3 Group at UMD


The Mo Materials Modeling (M^3) Group is led by Professor Yifei Mo at the University of Maryland, College Park. Our group emphasizes the application and development of cutting edge computational techniques to understand, design, and discover advanced materials.  Our group highly values innovations and passion to bridge fundamental scientific inquiry and critical materials problems in high-impact applications. The group collaborates closely with leading experimental research groups at the University of Maryland and across the world.

High impact of our research

Six of our papers published in 2015-2016 are selected by the Web of Science Essential Science Indicator (ESI) as highly cited paper, which receives high citations to place in the top 1% among the entire Materials Science (or Chemistry) field.

Our ACS Appl. Mater. Interface paper is the most read article of the journal in the past 12 month (top 10 among ~20,000), and our newly published Nature Comm. paper is the most viewed article in 2017 (top 10 among ~3,300).
