I work on formal methods for modelling and analysing chemical systems (algorithmic cheminformatics) and combines it with algorithm engineering to obtain implementations that are useful in practice. I am in general interested in algorithmics (in particular graph algorithms) and generic programming.
The Algorithms Group homepage.
The Cheminformatics Group homepage.
The development of new methods in algorithmic cheminformatics has resultet in multiple software packages, libraries, and incidental open source contributions. See also my GitHub page.
MØD: a package for graph-based cheminformatics.
GraphCanon: a C++ library with an algorithm framework for graph canonicalization, graph isomorphism, and computation of automorphism groups of graphs.
PermGroup: a C++ library working efficiently with permutation groups.
Sphinx: Sphinx is a documentation tool that supports multiple programming languages (domains). I am the author and maintainer of the C and C++ domains.
Breathe: A Sphinx extension for rendering Doxygen documentation. I have made several large contributions to the project.
List of Publications¶
Most of the publications uses the tradition of ordering authors by name. The exceptions, marked with (\(\tau\)) before the authors, uses the traditions, e.g., from life-science to order names.
