  • The gap problem in density functional theory (DFT)

    The gap problem in density functional theory (DFT)

    I proposed a new approach to address the asymptotic-limit problem in DFT and to predict the fundamental gap. The method gives accurate energy levels for atomic and molecular sy...

  • Electronic structure on graphics processing units (GPUs)

    Electronic structure on graphics processing units (GPUs)

    I developed an approach to perform DFT calculations efficiently using GPUs. The code, based on a real-space discretization, is one of the fastest DFT implementations available....

  • Massive parallelization

    Massive parallelization

    I have worked in the parallelization of electronic structure calculations on supercomputing platforms, in particular of the real-time TDDFT approach. The resulting implementati...

    Development of the Octopus electronic-structure code

    I am one of the main developers of Octopus, an open source package for electronic-structure simulations used by many research groups. I have implemented several components and...
