Prof. Dr. Christof Hättig

Prof. Dr. Christof Hättig CV: Christof Hättig studied chemistry (1987-1992) at the University in Bonn, Germany. He joint in 1992 the research group of B. Hess, with whom he received in 1992 his Diplom (M.Sc.) and in 1995 his Dr. rer. nat. (Ph.D). In 1996 he moved to Aarhus (Denmark) to join the quantum chemistry group of P. Jørgensen as postdoctoral fellow (1996) and assitant research professor (Marie Curie fellow, 1997-1999). In 1999 returned to Germany as research associate in the group of R. Ahlrichs at the Institute of Nanotechnology (Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe), where he became shortly after a young scientist group leader. He obtained his habilitation from the University of Kalrlsruhe (TH) in 2003 and received in 2004 the Hans G. A. Hellmann prize. Since 2006 he holds a position as professor at the Ruhr-University Bochum.

Research Interests: coupled-cluster response theory, electronically excited states, heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysis, correlated methods for large systems, intermolecular interactions, non-linear optical properties.
