Summary of 2013

Posted on February 3, 2014 at 9:40 AM

2013 has been a great year. I started the year knowing that my project DFTCorr was selected for the final stage of the Starting Grant (StG). I had the interview in Brussels on April. Unfortunately, it did not went as good as I would like to; one of the members of the committee was clearly against my proposal. On June I got the outcome. It was very good (A) but it was not enough to be grant...

A nine-year paper

Posted on January 4, 2014 at 6:40 PM

Anyone working on research knows that very seldom one has the chance to start and finish a paper within a short period of time. Usually a research project extends over a long period, with some lapses of time when the project gets stuck or halt for this or that reason. Namely, projects in collaboration with people from different institutions tend to be slow running projects. The story I explain in this post completely feels in this category. The research started on November 2004 and it got pub...

Conferences in 2013

Posted on October 28, 2013 at 10:20 PM

This year I have attended four different conferences and I have presented a few works, including some results for aromaticity, multicenter indices, third-order densities, electrides and DFT development.

On June I participated in the NCI Workshop Topological Approaches to Intermolecular Interactions organized, among others, by

This week I was invited to visit the group of Ricardo Mata in Göttingen. They are working in many fields, from Molecular Dynamics to local correlated methods. They even programmed a molecular application for android that can open xyz and pdb files, design new molecules and optimize them with a force field. The program h...

Parallel working

Posted on December 14, 2012 at 12:55 PM


The use of parallel architectures opens the possibility to address challenges that would be impossible otherwise. The biggest supercomputer in Catalonia is Mare Nostrum, which has been recently extended with Mare Nostrum 3 and belongs to the Barcelona Supercomputer Center (BSC). I have benefited from BSC resources in the past and currently I'm inv...
