Genealogy

Research Interests: The research focuses on reliable and accurate quantum-chemical studies of the properties and dynamics of quantum systems in external potentials, and on the development of an artificial intelligence approach to planning, conducting, and understanding of computational studies in quantum chemistry. The current research activities concern the reliable and accurate quantum-chemical study of the properties and dynamics of quantum systems in high intensity laser fields and in super strong magnetic fields

The research results have been documented in about 250 publications in refereed scientific journals.
