I am primarily interested in theoretical condensed matter physics and especially theories of excited state electronic structure and x-ray and electron spectra, e.g. as probed at modern synchrotron x-ray facilities. We are particularly interested in real-space, real-time approaches to many-body physics.

Research Interests

Our major interests involve the theory and computation of excited state electronic structure and of x-ray and electron spectra. Our group is especially known for the development of quantitative theories of x-ray spectra, as implemented for example, in the FEFF codes.
