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.
From left to right: Mr. Mauricio Rodríguez, Ms. Natàlia Abulí, Ms. Irene Casademont, Dr. Eloy Ramos-Córdoba, Mr. Jesus Antonio Luque, Dr. Eduard Matito and Dr. Ferran Feixas.
Mauricio is currently on the second year of his PhD thesis and works on the development of DFT functionals with the use of model systems. Natàlia is a last-year undergradute student working in the development of DFT functionals for the calculation of non-linear optical properties. Irene is a third-year undergraduate student working on Dye Sensitized Solar Cells using time-dependent DFT and several tools developed in the group to study the charge-transfer process. Eloy is a postdoctoral fellow working on method development, including DFT, DMFT, electron-correlation measures and local spin analysis. Jesus A. is a third-year undergraduate working on chemical bonding analysis with focus on multicenter interactions. Ferran is a postdoctoral fellow focused on protein dynamics (his own research line) and working with us on the construction of approximate high-order density matrices and chemical bonding analysis.
