I am interested in the theory of the electronic structure of atoms and molecules. In the framework of my PhD thesis, I am working in the metal-insulator transitions in low dimensional systems as well as other theoretical studies. I have also put online some posters and slides about the work I have done during my PhD here.

Part of my work has consisted in method development. We are proposing a new indicator called Position Spread tensor that can be used to characterize chemical bonds and at the same time monitor the wave functions (Ψ).

I have developed expertise in the use of methods based on the wave function such as : Multi-configurational self-consistent field (CASSCF), N-electron valence state perturbation theory (NEVPT), Multireference configuration interaction (MRCI), and Full configuration interaction.
