Computational studies of the electronic structure and properties of solids and molecules; a priori crystal structure prediction; materials under extreme conditions; bonding at the metal organic interface; homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis; solvated electrons; density functional theory.
The research in my group focuses on studying the electronic and geometrical structures, properties, and reactivity of molecules, nanosystems, interfaces and solids – whether they be inorganic or organic – using the computational approaches of quantum chemistry, and solid state physics (band structure methods).
