Biography:

Dr. Gusarov is a physicist with strong experience in theoretical and computational methods of electronic structure calculations. He develops and applies new computational methods of theoretical physics, including quantum mechanics and quantum/theoretical chemistry, for predicting and understanding the behaviour of systems on multiple scales.

Of special interest to him are methods for:
  • Electronic structure calculations of complex systems
  • Molecular theory of solvation
  • Solid-liquid, liquid-liquid interface reactions
  • Nanosupported catalysis
  • Nonlinear spectroscopy of strongly interacting systems
  • Electronic properties of highly correlated systems
He works on computational chemistry software, collaborating with developers of well known computational packages like MOLCAS (University of Lund), ADF (University of Calgary) and AMBER (Scripps Research Institute).
