Elena Roxana Margine

Associate Professor

Physics, Applied Physics and Astronomy


Roxana Margine is an expert in the development and application of first principles electronic structure methods for modeling structural, electronic, superconducting and transport properties of materials at the atomic scale. Since 2011, she has been on the development team of the open-source software project EPW. She introduced a computational method for describing conventional superconductors that combines the anisotropic Eliashberg formalism with the Wannier functions-based interpolation approach.

Before joining Binghamton University,Margine held two post-doctoral positions at the University of Lyon (2007-2008) and the University of Oxford (2009-2012), and was a Marie Curie Fellow (2011-2012).
