Materials are enablers of innovation in science and technology and have brought about revolutionary changes to society: familiar examples are the materials used in transistors and in batteries that have become omnipresent in our daily lives.

In this Campus Lecture — also a MARVEL Distinguished Lecture — Giulia Galli will tell an atomic-level story of how we can predict and design materials for next generation technologies, by combining theories based on quantum mechanics, software running on high performance computers and ever-growing amounts of data. 
They aim to tackle two outstanding challenges: designing sustainable materials to efficiently capture solar energy and enable technologies deployable in both developed and developing countries, and inventing materials to build radically novel sensors and computers, to move in earnest into the quantum information age.
