The main research interests of Professor Sun spreads in computational condensed matter physics, extreme condition physics, materials design and simulations. Currently, his research is mainly focused on:

1) Development of computational methods: crystal structure predictions, machine-learning force fields, graph theory, etc;

2) Static calculations on the properties of materials under high pressure: insulator-metal phase transitions, quantum materials, etc;

3) Dynamical simulations of matters under extreme conditions: new states of matters (superionic, plastic, collective diffusion), melting, phase transition mechanism, structure of liquids, etc;

4) Prediction of high pressure synthesis and materials design: superhard, high-energy-density, superconductors, etc.
