Areas of Interest

Our group works at the interface of theoretical chemistry with physics, computer science, and applied mathematics. In particular, we are interested in approaches that can be disruptive to the field. We develop and apply quantum computer algorithms for applications in the physical sciences such as the simulation of molecules and materials. We also are working towards the acceleration of molecular discovery by the combination of robotics, artificial intelligence, and high-throughput quantum chemistry to create what we call “materials acceleration platforms” or “self-driving laboratories”. We are a multidisciplinary team composed of chemists, physicists, computer scientists, etc. working both on theory and experiment.
