Our group specializes in theory and computer simulation of chemical and molecular processes. Our focus is on explaining practical phenomena in chemistry, biophysics and material science through fundamental principles of quantum chemistry, thermodynamics and statistical mechanics.

Computational Chemistry is one of the six research themes united in the Van 't Hoff Institute for Molecular Science at the University of Amsterdam.

We are also part of the Amsterdam Center for Multiscale Modeling (ACMM).
