Group members


European Research Council starting grant. With this grant part of my group is working on new algorithms for massively parallel molecular simulation on upcoming multi-million core supercomputers.

Software development

I am one of the three main developers of the GROMACS molecular simulation package.
GROMACS is probably the fastest and one of the most versatile MD packages in the world.
