Dimitar Pashov is a member of the Real Materials Group, working with Mark van Schilfgaarde at King’s College London. He obtained his Ph.D. at the Atomistic Simulations Centre, Queen’s University Belfast, under the supervision of Professor Paxton.
His interests presently are in treating spin fluctuations in an ab initio framework with the quasiparticle self-consistent GW theory. He is also involved with various algorithmic improvements in the LM suite, containing a spectrum of electronic structure codes from a full-potential linear muffin-tin all-electron method, polarizable ion tight binding theory and others. His earlier work includes Green functions, linear scaling, bond-order potential parameterization and parallel implementation, and multilevel parallel tight binding implementation, utilizing GPUs on suitable parts of the solution.
