Methods and Codes
We develop methods and codes to understand and predict the properties of molecules and condensed systems. Method developments include electronic and vibrational spectroscopies, thermal transport and development of hybrid functionals and constrained DFT.
We are developing the WEST code and we are part of the Qbox development team led by Prof. Francois Gygi at UC Davis; in particular we focus on coupling first principles molecular dynamics with many body perturbation theory (GW and BSE) methods, and with advanced sampling techniques (SSAGES).
