Author of:

250 scientific articles in journals of Chemical Physics and Theoretical Chemistry

Important Contributions:

Second-order multiconfiguration self-consistent field methods, internally contracted multireference configuration interaction methods, multireference perturbation theory, linear scaling local electron correlation methods, explicitly correlated MP2 and Coupled-Cluster methods, analytical energy gradients, in particular for local correlation methods and multireference perturbation theory. Author of the MOLPRO quantum chemistry package (www.molpro.net). Numerous applications of quantum chemical methods in spectroscopy and molecular dynamics; electronically excited states, highly accurate coupled potential energy surfaces for chemical reactions, non-adiabatic couplings, quasi-diabatic representations, quantum dynamics of non-adiabatic processes in atom-molecule collisions, photodissociation, and elementary chemical reactions.
