## My research and my projects

My research projects revolve around developing and implementing algorithms for the quantum-chemical modelling of atoms and molecules.

I investigate, for example, how unusual basis functions (e.g. Coulomb Sturmians or Finite Elements) could be employed when solving the fundamental equations of quantum chemistry. Related to this, I wish to address the question of how a modern design for a quantum-chemical software could be achieved, which is both modular and enables experimentation. Read more ...

## My teaching activities

Since the beginning of my PhD I have been involved with tutoring in introductory classes for chemistry or computer science students and gave a couple of short courses about scripting and programming. Furthermore I helped organising a summer school for year 12 pupils, in which we offered a course about basic quantum chemistry. Teaching overview ...
