Our research is mainly focused on nonadiabatic processes occurring after molecular photoexcitation. These investigations are done using quantum-chemical and excited-state dynamics simulations. I’m also the designer and one of the main developers of the Newton-X program.
I earned a Ph.D. in physics from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in 2001. In 2008, I was granted a Habilitation (Privatdozent) to teach quantum chemistry at the University of Vienna, where I was a postdoc fellow with Hans Lischka. From 2010 to 2015, I’ve been a group leader at the Max Planck Institut für Kohlenforschung in Mülheim, Germany. In 2015, I moved to Marseille where I was appointed as a professor of a chair of excellence A*Midex.

The research in my group is mainly supported by the Excellence Initiative of the Aix-Marseille University (A*MIDEX), funded by the French Government “Investissements d’Avenir” program.
We also count on the support from:
- The HPC resources from the Mesocenter in the Aix-Marseille University, through the project Equip@Meso (ANR-10-EQPX-29-01), also funded by the French Government “Investissements d’Avenir” program.
- The WSPLIT project funded by the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR-17-CE05-0005-01).
- The São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP), which funds the postdoctoral work of Fabris Kossoski, under grant No. 2016/21880-7.
- The HPC resources from GENCI-CINES (2017-A0010810012).
