Assistant Professor, Theoretical & Computational Chemistry

Welcome to the Computational Chemistry Lab

Our aim is to understand and predict structure formation and reactivity in chemistry. Therefore, we develop multi-level computational protocols using methodologies from Molecular Dynamics to (ab initio) quantum chemistry.

Our main focus is the prediction of reactivity and selectivity in catalysis and in complex molecular systems.

Selfie with Karl @TUChemnitz Thank you for inviting me to my 1st #GDCh talk, @BreugstLab! I had a fantastic time and many exciting discussions with @TeichertLab and Robert Kretschmer. #compchem #chemistry PodewitzLab photo


We develop multi-scale modelling protocols to solve chemical problems. A focus is on the elucidation of reaction mechanims and reactivity in (transition-metal) catalysis and in complex systems.
