systematic coarse-grainingsimulationstheorytransportorganic semiconductors


The current work of my group is focused on three topics: (i) enhanced sampling of soft matter systems or systematic coarse-graining, (ii) charge and energy transport in organic semiconductors, and (iii) rational compound design. The research is material science oriented and, in a number of cases, also involves industrial partners working on the design of light emitting diodes and solar cells. All developed methods have been implemented in one package, namely the Versatile Object-oriented Toolkit for Coarse-graining and Charge Transport Applications (VOTCA). The package is written in C++ with a python/bash flow control and is available for free under the Apache license at
