Welcome to the group webpage


The aim of our research group is to tackle fundamental problems in Chemistry and Physics using Mathematical techniques. The group's interest lies at the interface between Physics and Chemistry, and mainly focus on developing simple approximations that are accurate enough to have chemical and physical usefulness. I am collaborating with Michel Caffarel and Anthony Scemama, who are also members of the LCPQ.
