Paul Daniel Ang

Paul finished the BS Applied Physics (Materials Physics) program magna cum laude in 2018 and was supported by a DOST-SEI Merit Scholarship. Paul's research involved developing methods to study the elastic and piezoelectric properties of hexagonal crystals with the Quantum ESPRESSO software package. Paul later pursued graduate studies with a newfound interest in numerical weather and climate modeling, obtaining an MS degree in Meteorology from the UPD Institute of Environmental Science and Meteorology in 2021.

BS Thesis: 

Structural, electronic, elastic, and piezoelectric properties of AlN from density functional theory
