Margine’s research is dedicated to the development and application of cutting-edge computational methods for description and rational design of emerging materials. Margine is particularly interested in superconductors and thermoelectrics which have strategic applications in energy transport, energy harvesting, and electronics. She has developed a computational tool within the EPW package (http://epw.org.uk) that enables a fully anisotropic Migdal-Eliashberg treatment of the electron-phonon coupling via Wannier functions. EPW is an open-source F90/MPI code which calculates properties related to the electron-phonon interaction using Density-Functional Perturbation Theory and Maximally Localized Wannier Functions.
Before joining Binghamton University as an Assistant Professor in August 2014, Roxana Margine was a Research Fellow at the University of Lyon and a Marie Curie Fellow at the University of Oxford, one of the most prestigious individual awards for early-career scientists in Europe.
