I am a theoretical chemist by training. I apply laws of quantum chemistry to study chemical properties of molecules. For that purpose I develop new theories and write computer programs for their mathematical modeling. I am one of the lead authors of the popular quantum chemistry software Package ORCA. My specific research interest are :
- Development of lower scaling wave-function based methods.
- Physics and chemistry of anions.
- Simulation of X-ray spectroscopy.
