Research topic: Ultra-fast dynamics of multi-electron systems in strong fields

Research abstract:
Exploration of the link between electron correlation and multi-electron dynamics in
atoms in ultra-short laser fields by means of a set of problems: multiphoton ionization rates
as a function of peaks intensity, interferences between wavpackets generated by a
sequence of two-ultra short pulses. I also work in the maintenance and development of the
computer codes, including parallelisation.
