    CODER, the committee on diversity and equity in research, is a Billinge group initiative. The committee currently has a mission to increase inclusivity in the research group with a longer term goal of increasing the racial, ethnic and gender diversity of the group. Committee members present a discussion segment on these issues to be had by the whole group every two weeks during group meeting, and also lead other social efforts in the group such as group movie nights and a stress-reducing intentional breathing segment during group meeting every week.

    We recently identified that intrinsic orbital degeneracy lifting can result in broken symmetry states existing in d-electron materials at high temperatures. The group of A. Zunger, Co-PI on this project, recently independently found that standard density functional theory quantum mechanical calculations can sometimes predict symmetry broken ground-states in materials where the most stable structure is lower in energy, and in symmetry, than the observed crystal structure. This project is to try and gain insight into this novel phenomenon through a combined mathematics, AI, theory, and experimental campaign.
