Topic: Inspired by the global thrust towards miniaturization and by the
ubiquitous research in 2D-materials, the activity will focus on the
modelling of ferroelectrics, ferromagnets and multiferroics towards
the 2D limit. Materials of interest will range from 2D magnets (CrI3,
NiI2, …) to few layers of CMOS-compatible ferroelectrics (HfO2) to 2Dchalcogenides
(SnTe, GeTe). First-principles simulations will be
performed, aimed at fundamental understanding of microscopic
mechanisms and materials optimization for applications. Machine
learning approaches, based on high-throughput simulations, will also
