Welcome

We are a theoretical chemistry group in the department of Inorganic and Physical Chemistry at UGent. Our main lines of research are:

  • Density matrix theory and chemical applications
  • Chiroptical spectroscopy (experimental and theoretical)
  • Atoms-in-molecules and chemical bonding
  • Conceptual Density Functional Theory
  • Method development
