Areas of Interest/Research

  • On April 18, 2017, I submitted a book on quantum mechanics to the publisher. I have been working on it since 2004. Check my Research page for details.
  • From 2010, I spend most of my time working as an administrator to run Research Computing, which provides infrastructure for researchers at UF and their collaborators to perform the computational and data management tasks that are part of modern research in all fields of scholarship, engineering, science, and mathematics.
  • Since 2015, I have worked on providing secure infrastructure for research with restricted data.
  • I have always been very interested in quantum mechanics and the theories of special and general relativity. Most of my scientific career, I have worked in computational molecular physics.
  • My current research interest is to finish the publication of a book on the principles of quantum mechanics.


I have been a computational physicist and chemist during most of his career. I am the principal author of the time dependent approach to molecular dynamics that treats both the atomic nuclei and the electrons explicitly, called electron nuclear dynamics. I am the author of the ENDyne software that implements this method. I also created of the super instruction architecture, an approach to support rapid programming of complex algorithms that need to scale to tens of thousands of compute cores. ACES III was written using this architecture. Now the successor ACES 4 has been created to further optimize the features of this approach. I have provided support and consulting services for compuational scientists in numerous ways, at UF and an various places around the US.
