Welcome to the Dreuw research group


"The important thing in science is not so much to obtain new facts as to discover new ways of thinking about them."

Sir William Bragg (1862-1942)


"An idiot with a computer is just a faster, better idiot."

Richard T. Julius


In our group we investigate chemical and biophysical problems with the help of modern theoretical and computational methods. One main interest is the study of photo-initiated processes in complex molecular systems ranging from small molecules to large molecular assemblies, and one focus here is put on the development of quantum chemical methods for that purpose. Nevertheless, we also tackle challenging ground state problems. Our research is summarized in a brief recent review, and even more details can be found on our new research webpage.
