Our research deals with the development of theoretical methods for chemistry and materials science. In particular, approaches derived from quantum mechanics have been in the focus of our work. Applications encompass a broad range of systems ranging from (bio-)molecules and functional coordination compounds to condensed phase systems and solar light-driven processes.
The following topics have been in the center of our research:
Investigation of Chiral Systems
Purpose-Driven Vibrational Spectroscopy
Vibrational Spectroscopy for Condensed Phase Systems and Interfaces
Analysis of Functional Compounds
Catalysis and Design
