We are an Electronic Structure Theory Research Group at the University of California, Berkeley and the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. We have worked on nearly all aspects of electronic structure at some point in time or the other, but one can glean our current interests from the Research page.

Our wavefunctions are mostly spatially localized at the basement of Gilman Hall and our Group Meetings typically run from 2-4 PM on Friday afternoons.
