Research Description

I am currently working on a variety of subjects, inlcuding Stochastic optimization (Simulated Annealing) and its application to structural sampling of atomic and molecular clusters. Molecular structure and bonding. Cluster science. Chemical reactivity. Conducting polymers. DFT formalism. Relativistic effects in chemistry. I am also working on algorithms that translate connectivity and spatial arrangements of proteins into musical sequences and harmony.

The follow links will take you to to watch live performances of music composed by me for a few of Raold Hoffmann's poems. Enjoy! The sound is much better wearing headphones:

Flat stones beg to be recycled
Lava
Enough already
Tsunami
