Nominator's project description

Professor Bartlett is well known internationally for his outstanding research in theoretical chemistry. He has made pioneering contributions to coupled cluster and many-body perturbation theory. His methods have become the gold standard in accurate quantum chemistry. During his stay in Germany, he intends to explore the application of coupled cluster methods to large complex systems including enzymes.
