Research Activities

  • Beyond mean-field theories in finite electronic systems

Permanent developer of the QDD (Quantum Dissipative Dynamics) code

  • Time-Dependent Density Functional Theory applied to non-adiabatic dynamics of small molecules and clusters in gas phase
  • Hierarchical approach for the description of metal clusters in contact with a polarisable environment (rare gas, MgO) with explicit dynamical dipoles
  • Signatures of the quark-gluon plasma in ultrarelativistic heavy ion collisions (1999-2003)
