A driving force for research is the discovery and design of new materials to improve existing technologies or enable new applications. Material modeling methods are now widely applied in pursuit of this objective. This presentation will review the evolution of some common material modeling methods and their integration with cutting-edge experimental techniques. Illustrative applications will be discussed within the context of the design of two-dimensional materials and the investigation of carbide-derived carbons for the capture of acid gases.
