SCM is pleased to announce that Dr. Erik van Lenthe will join the SCM team in April 2002. Dr. van Lenthe has many years of experience in ADF, both as a developer and as a user. He has implemented the ZORA relativistic method in ADF. Some of his other expertise areas include: molecular property calculations, and basis set development.
Dr. van Lenthe did his Ph.D. under the supervision of Prof. Baerends and Prof. Snijders in Amsterdam. He was a postdoc in the group of Prof. van der Avoird in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, and later returned as a postdoc in Prof. Baerends group in Amsterdam to further develop the ADF code.
