Research in the Manby group is focused on the development of new methods in electronic structure theory and quantum chemistry. We are particularly interested in development of accurate wavefunction-based electronic structure theories, and extension of molecular quantum chemistry into the domain of condensed-phase challenges. Successful electronic structure methods are implemented in the Molpro quantum chemistry package, which is distributed to over 500 research institutions around the world.

Manby is a co-Director of the Oxford-Bristol-Southampton Centre for Doctoral Training in Theory and Modelling in Chemical Sciences
