Curriculum Vitae

Research Topics and Team

    My scientific work can be regrouped into two main research blocks:
  • Formal developments, implementation, and applications in density functional theory (DFT)
  • Formal developments, implementation, and applications in many-body perturbation theory (MBPT) based on Green’s functions
  • DFT and MBPT are two state-of-the-art frameworks for the description and prediction of material properties, such as photoemission, optical absorption and metal-insulator transitions. In particular I am interested in the description of strongly correlated materials, which physics is difficult to capture using standard approximations.

    I currently supervise a team of two postdocs and two PhD students.

    • Current team members

  • Stefano Di SABATINO (Postdoc, ANR )

    After a one-year postdoc position with me and my colleague Pierre-François LOOS (LCPQ), Stefano is now working with Michel CAFFAREL (LCPQ) and myself on merging QMC with many-body perturbation theory. Stefano is also working on other side projects on strong electron correlation.

  • Jaakko KOSKELO (Postdoc, ANR)

    Jaakko is on a two-year postdoctoral contract with me and my colleague Arjan BERGER (LCPQ). He works on refining a method (the many-body effective energy theory, Phys. Rev. B 94, 155141 (2016)) we recently derived to describe the Mott gap in strongly correlated insulators from first principles.

  • Roberto ORLANDO (PhD, 80|PRIME)

    Roberto has just started his PhD with my colleague Pierre-François LOOS (LCPQ) and myself. He is exploring new approximations to the kernel of the Bethe-Salpeter equation, which is used in MBPT for the description of optical spectra.

  • Gabriele RIVA (PhD, ANR)

    Gabriele has just started his PhD with my colleague Arjan BERGER (LCPQ) and myself. Being the one-body and the two-body Green’s functions too simple for him, he is working with the three-body Green’s functions!!!
