Maël Bosson

Maël Bosson was a PhD student in the NANO-D research group (thesis manuscript) at the INRIA Grenoble – Rhone-Alpes Research Center. He has been working on the reactive Brenner potential: “Interactive physically-based structural modeling of hydrocarbon systems” (appeared in Journal of Computational Physics).

He has been working on the semi-empirical EHMO-ASED model (extension of the Extended Hückel theory) with an order N method. An analytical study has delivered interesting insight on the approach and suggests different ways to improve the scheme (appeared in Journal of Computational Chemistry).

He has been working on applying the adaptive paradigm to quantum chemistry models. He has proposed a novel Block-Adaptive Quantum Mechanics (BAQM) approach to interactive quantum chemistry. BAQM constrains some nuclei positions and some electronic degrees of freedom on the fly to simplify the simulation.

Videos demonstrating interactive quantum chemistry in SAMSON is available on the ASED web page.

A french introduction to interactive quantum chemistry is also available.
