My Research is in the area of Computational Atomic and Molecular Theory. I am currently working on electron scattering from simple systems H, H2 and
H2+ using purely ab initio methods. My goal is to do a highly
accurate calculation of not only the ground state, but the excited states using a Time Dependent Finite Element method.
.:. Electron-Atom/Molecular Scattering .:.
In the area of Quantum Chemistry there are numerous methods that involve electron-scattering from
large systems. Quite frequently the ever evolving problem of electron correlation lead to the development of the Hartee-Fock Theory and the use of Density Functional Theory for electronic structure calculations
for middle to large systems by introducing the electron-density formulation.
.:.Time Dependent Basis Functions .:.
At Florida A&M University we have developed Time Dependent Basis Functions which treat spatial and temporal calculations on the same footing. This evaluation of the time axis allows for a more robust
evaluation of the Time-Dependent Schroedinger Equation.
