As part of the NanoPar group (www.nanopar.dk) at DTU and Copenhagen University PhD student Hans Henrik Sørensen has been developing new parallel algorithms for the calculation of electron transport in nanostructures within a Density Functional Theory (DFT) framework. In particular, interest has been on exploring the possibility of applying iterative Krylov Subspace methods in order to reduce the expense of the DFT self-consistent loop.

International experience

Hans Henrik Sørensen has experience from scientific stays as a guest PhD fellow at the Earth Simulator Center, Tokyo, Japan and at the Institute for Applied Mathematics, Delft University of Technology, NL.
