My talk 'New Stringent Conditions for the Cumulant Matrix' was selected for 10th edition of the World Association of Theoretically-Oriented Chemists (WATOC) that will be celebrated in Santiago de Chile. In addition, I was invited to give a talk in the satellite meeting "New Approaches in Theoretical Chemistry" that will be held in the University of Chile in Santiago two days before WATOC.

Last week the European Young Chemist Award Organization notified me that I had been selected among the finalists of the EYCA2014. The final step of this competition is a 10min talk that takes places at the 5th European Chemistry Congress that I will attend in Istanbul. As far as I remember there are eight candidates in the postdoc category;...Read Full Post »

This summer the group will enjoy the visit of a few researchers. Some of them will come next week to attend the XI edition of the Girona Seminar and the others will arrive during the following weeks and stay for a longer time.
The Girona Seminar will bring a few collaborators: Dr. J. Óscar C. Jiménez-Halla (alumni currently in Univ. Guanajuato), Prof.Read Full Post »

In the last years we have worked in the design of a new approximation to the third-order density that just got accepted for publication in J. Chem. Theory Comput. The nth order density is a well-known quantity in quantum mechanics that gives the probability of finding n particles (usually electrons) simultaneously in different location of the molecular spRead Full Post »

This year research will take me to travel around the world. Literally :-) My trip starts on the 8th of August and I will be back in Girona the 7th of September. I will attend three conferences and visit a research group.
My journey starts in San Franciso. I will participate in the 248th ACS meeting in San Francisco where I will give two oral presentations:

This year, a work published in Chem. Eur. J. was chosen for a cover in this journal. This work is devoted to Inverse carbon-free sandwich structures with formula E2P4 (E=Al, Ga, In, Tl), which have been proposed as a promising new target in main-group chemistry. Our computational exploration of their corresponding potential-energy surfaces at the S12h/TZ2P level show...Read Full Post »

On March we meet with the working team for a group photo. The group is slowly growing and now it includes one PhD student, one full-time postdoctoral fellow and partial-time one as well as three undergraduate students. They have all been employed by the Europa Excelencia project from MINECO.

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...Read Full Post »

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...Read Full Post »

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, byRead Full Post »
