Be greeted

mfh and welcome at michael-herbst.com.

Currently I am a postdoctoral fellow at the MATHERIALS team of the CERMICS laboratory, ENPC, and Inria Paris. I work on the density-functional toolkit (DFTK), a Julia code for density-functional theory, and on ADC connect (adcc), a framework for ADC-based computational spectroscopy.

Research interests

My research revolves around developing and implementing algorithms for the quantum-chemical modelling of atoms, molecules and solids.

For this purpose I aim to produce codes, which are able to combine the differing research efforts of this interdisciplinary field. This means that one software should be flexible enough to tackle both mathematical toy problems, as well as performant enough to target computations on the practical scale. In this regime my language of choice is Julia. Read more ...

Teaching activities

Since the beginning of my PhD I have been involved with tutoring and throughout the years I offered multiple short courses about scripting and programming (e.g. Julia, bash, awk). Furthermore I regularly participate in organising summer schools for final year pupils (i.e. Deutsche Sch├╝lerakademie), in which we e.g. offered a course about basic quantum chemistry.
