Michael F. Herbst
I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Applied and Computational Mathematics (ACoM) research lab at RWTH Aachen University, Germany. My research interests are broad and interdisciplinary in the simulation of electronic structures and atomistic systems. In my work I combine mathematical and physical approaches in order to make existing methods more reliable and efficient and to provide robust means to control simulation error. The main tool for my research is the density-functional toolkit (DFTK), a Julia code suitable for mathematical developments as well as full-scale applications in DFT.
