My research interest is the calculation of atomic properties using variational methods, either nonrelativistic with BreitPauli corrections or fully relativistic methods based on Dirac theory. Codes for largescale, parallel calculations have been developed and applied to a large number of atomic systems. Of particular interest are all possible types of transition probabilities between levels of a spectrum. The results have been collected in a database for energy levels, lifetimes, and transition probabilities, http://atoms.vuse.vanderbilt.edu. Latest Publications
