We do more than run calculations; we develop and implement new electronic
structure methods. The code we write usually becomes part of Turbomole, a
suite of programs with thousands of users worldwide. To learn more about our
work head on to our research page or browse our group publication list.
Because method development cannot be learned from books, we spend a lot of
time working together and supporting one another. At the same time, most of
us have our own pet projects. You can read more about these projects on our
member pages. Our alumni move on to positions in large chemical companies or
Scientific collaborations are important to us, whether inside the UCI
Theoretical and Computational Chemistry Initiative, in the Department of
Chemistry, or with groups throughout the world. We also participate in
AirUCI, a multidisciplinary research institute dedicated to understanding
and solving issues related to air pollution, climate change, water quality,
and green technology.
Outside of quantum chemistry, we often appreciate the natural beauty around
us by going on group hikes and camping trips. Pictures of some recent
highlights (and low points) can be found on our activities page.
If you are interested in joining us, whether as an undergraduate or graduate
student, or as a postdoc, please read more on our openings page.
This research is based upon work supported by the Department
of Energy under Award DE-SC0008694,
the National Science Foundation (NSF) under Award CHE-1464828 and
Dr. Henk Eshuis received tenure at Montclair State University, NJ.
Brandon accepted the position of a computational
sciences post-doctoral fellow in Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
Saswata and Sree Ganesh
passed the oral examination for advancement to candidacy.
Prof. Reinhart Ahlrichs, Filipp’s
former advisor and Turbomole initiator, passed away at the age of 76. He will be dearly missed.
