Quantum Chemistry for Light-, Electron- or Force-Induced Processes
in Chemistry, Biophysics and Material Science


"The important thing in science is not so much to obtain new facts as to discover new ways of thinking about them."

Sir William Bragg (1862-1942)


"An idiot with a computer is just a faster, better idiot."

Richard T. Julius


In our research group, we aim at a comprehensive understanding of chemical and biophysical problems using modern theoretical and computational methods. Our main interest is the study of light-, electron- or force-induced processes in complex molecular systems ranging from small molecules to large molecular assemblies. For that objective, we develop novel methodological concepts and new quantum chemical methods. Our research is summarized in a brief recent review, and even more details can be found on our new research webpage.
