Research Interests

My research interests are in theoretical/computational chemistry. My group is focused on the development of quantum-chemical methods for treating strongly correlated solid-state materials and for modeling the electronic structure properties of large systems. The aim is to use these methods to guide the design of complex systems with potential impact in catalysis and energy generation.
