François-Xavier Coudert

Senior Researcher at CNRS & Professor at PSL University

I work at Institut de Recherche de Chimie Paris, a joint CNRS / Chimie ParisTech research institute, in the Organometallic Chemistry and Polymerization Catalysis team. My research group there is centered mainly on molecular simulation at various scales, covering first principles methods (quantum chemistry calculations, ab initio molecular dynamics), classical methods (force field-based molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo), and mesoscopic modeling.

Below is a list of current and past members of the group.
