Felix Plasser - Homepage


I am postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Theoretical Chemistry at the University of Vienna. Currently, I am working in the Gonzalez Research Group as part of the international DeNeTheor project. The DeNeTheor project is aimed at developing new theoretical methods for the simulation and control of excited-state properties and reactivity in biological environments.

In general, my research is devoted to understanding interactions of molecules with light in systems of biological or technological interest. This goal is achieved by high-level electronic structure computations in combination with detailed wavefunction analysis protocols and dynamics simulations.

Read the "motivation for research" page to get a general overview of why we are doing this kind of work. A more detailed description of my research is provided to explain my specific work, to list the program packages I have been involved with, and to give an overview over my publications. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
