Welcome to the group webpage
The aim of our research group is to tackle fundamental problems in Chemistry and Physics using Mathematical techniques with a specific emphasis on excited states in molecular systems. The group’s interest lies at the interface between Physics and Chemistry, and mainly focus on developing highly-accurate electronic structure methods as well as simple approximations that are accurate enough to have chemical and physical usefulness. I am actively collaborating with my colleagues and nonetheless friends Michel Caffarel and Anthony Scemama.
If you would like to discuss joining the group or working on a project, please email me.
