Research Areas

Professor Moreo's research interests are centered on the understanding of strongly correlated electronic systems, in particular, high Tc superconductors, manganites and other transition metal oxides. Most of her research involve large scale numerical calculations performed on supercomputers and large clusters of work stations.
