About me

I am a theoretical physicist working on developing and applying quantum mechanical simulation methods and I am also leading the Korringa-Kohn-Rostoker Green Function group at the PGI-1/IAS-1. I am responsible for the development and maintenance of the respective open-source code family JuKKR. The JuKKR suite consists of a list of codes that are specialized for different use cases. The codes are linked to AiiDA, a high-throughput environment for autonomous computing via the AiiDA-KKR plugin.

Research fields

  • Ab initio electronic-structure theory: Density functional theory (DFT), Korringa-Kohn-Rostoker Green function theory and method, multiple scattering theory and transport phenomena, ab-initio Bogoliubov de Gennes method for superconductivity
  • Method development: High-throughput and high-performance computing, parallelization and performance optimization on supercomputers, open source software, materials informatics, machine learning
  • Quantum materials: Topological insulators, Weyl and Dirac semimetals, quantum anomalous Hall insulators, magnetic interactions, physics of surfaces, interfaces, defects and impurities, spintronics and spinorbitronics, superconducting heterostructures for topological qubits
