### Research Areas

### Research Description

Professor Scuseria is a US citizen born in Argentina. He received his Ph. D. in Physics from the University of Buenos Aires in 1983. After moving to UC Berkeley in 1985, his interest in electronic structure theory steered him to the quantum chemistry field. He joined the faculty at Rice in 1989. Over the years, he has straddled between chemistry and physics, working in diverse areas ranging from coupled cluster to density functional theories and on applications to both molecules and solids including actinide oxides and carbon nanostructures.
