Research Focus:
Our group works on a wide range of quantum-chemical simulation methods and their application to questions in fundamental chemistry, catalysis, materials research, and biology. The methodological emphasis is on Kohn-Sham density functional theory, in particular on the development and implementation into efficient computer programs of novel exchange-correlation functionals (e.g. the class of so-called local hybrid functionals). Additionally, we have a long-standing interest in perturbation-theoretical methods for the calculation of spectroscopic parameters, in particular in the framework of relativistic quantum chemistry. Environmental effects on chemical and physical processes are studied by ab initio molecular dynamics simulations and various types of implicit solvent models. The entire machinery of modern quantum chemistry is applied to a wide range of problems, often in collaboration with experimental groups. 

Summarizing, my current research interests include:

  • Density functional theory, exchange-correlation functionals
  • Perturbation theory, spectroscopic parameters
  • Relativistic quantum chemistry
  • ab initio molecular dynamics simulations
  • Solvent models
  • Applications of quantum chemistry simulations to a wide variety of problems
