My main area of research is electronic structure theory of solids and nanostructured materials. In particular

The primary tool for my work is the electronic structure code GPAW, which can do state-of-the-art Density Functional Theory and Many-Body Perturbation Theory calculations. The code is open source and is being develeloped continuously by myself and many others.
