Dr. Roxana Margine received her PhD in Physics with a minor in High Performance Computing from Pennsylvania State University in 2007.
Before joining Binghamton University as an Assistant Professor in August 2014, she was a Research Fellow at the University of Lyon and a Marie Curie Fellow at the University of Oxford.

Research Overview

My research is dedicated to the development and application of cutting-edge computational methods for description and rational design of emerging materials. I am particularly interested in superconductors and thermoelectrics which have strategic applications in energy transport, energy harvesting, and electronics.

I have recently developed a computational tool within the EPW package ( 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. EPW is distributed as part of the Quantum Espresso.
