To the question What do you do for a living? I usually answer I teach chemistry and I solve the time-dependent Schroedinger equation. You'll find below what I exactly teach and why do I solve the Schroedinger equation.
As Maître de conférences, I teach 192h a year. I teach general chemistry and mathematics for chemists (see teaching-activities for more details).
My main research activity is the development of theoretical approaches and associated numerical tools for the description of ultrafast electronic and nuclear processes. The latter include the electronic motion in the course of ion-molecule collisions, the electronic and nuclear response of a molecule in an intense laser field and the electronic decay processes of excited molecules and the nuclear dynamics associated to it. Modeling these processes finds applications in chemical physics, spectroscopy, plasma physics and astrophysics (see research-activities for more details).
