officeWelcome to Light and Molecules by Mario Barbatti.

This website is dedicated to present the work of my research group at the Institut de Chimie Radicalaire of the Aix-Marseille University in Marseille, France.

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 PhD 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 Institute for Coal Research in Mülheim, Germany. Recently, I moved to Marseille where I was appointed to an A*Midex Professorship Chair.

You can also find a more informal account of my views on science in my personal blog, Much Bigger Outside.
