## Defect Dynamics Group

Research conducted in the group is concerned with understanding the properties and dynamics of defects in crystals, particularly those in structural materials for extreme environments such as next-generation fission and fusion reactors (see Materials for Fusion and Fission Power group homepage). We develop mathematical and computational models for materials at theĀ *mesoscale*, i.e. lengthscales of the order of 100s of nanometres to 100s of microns. These models aim to bridge the gap between the smaller realms of atomistic and electronic calculations with the larger scales of engineering interest.
