Awards

In 2003 Dr. Nooijen received the prestigious Medal of the International Academy of Quantum Molecular Sciences at the IX International Conference of Quantum Chemistry in Bonn, July 2003. The quotation with the award reads "for his contributions to the many-body treatment of the electronic structure of molecules, particularly his use of double similarity transformations to generalize coupled-cluster methods for excited states" For more information on the award see: http://www.iaqms.org/awards.php

Major Research Interests

Advanced electronic structure methods based on coupled cluster and perturbation theory; Electronically excited states; Vibronic Coupling and non-adiabatic dynamics; Automatic synthesis of electronic structure codes; Local correlation.
