Young Investigator Award

sanibel_prizeThe Sanibel Symposium is organized yearly by the University of Florida’s Quantum Theory Project and is well known as the “Theory Meeting for Theoreticians”. I’m very happy that they recognized my contributions to the field and honored me with the “Young Investigator Award”.

My plenary talk “Density functional theory including van der Waals forces” focused on efficient ways to treat all non-covalent interactions in the density functional framework. After recapitulating the D3 type dispersion correction, I introduced some of our recent low-cost electronic structure methods, showed their excellent performance on several benchmarks, and demonstrated their applicability to large and complex systems.
