Welcome to the website of the Tozer research group. The central aim of our work is to improve the quality of density functional theory calculations in areas where the method is deficient and to apply the method to a range of important chemical problems. The site contains full details of our research interests and research group, together with links to all publications, details of talks, a benchmark assessment repository, and links to external sites and teaching materials. It also contains photographs of the historic City of Durham.
