My name is Kevin F. Garrity, and I am a former postdoc in the department of physics and astronomy at Rutgers University.  Currently (as of June 2014), I am an research associate at NIST. I worked with David Vanderbilt and Karin M. Rabe on a variety of topics related to condensed matter theory and materials science.  My research has consisted largely of using first principles density functional theory calculations to study, model, understand, and design interesting systems, with applications related to topological insulators, advanced functional materials, oxide interfaces, and surface physics.   Please see my research interests and publication list for more details.
