Franck Rabilloud joined Laboratoire de Spectrometrie Ionique et Moleculaire, University of Lyon, Bron, France, in 2001 as an Assistant Professor after obtaining a Ph.D. degree in chemical physics at the University of Toulouse, France, on the study of electronic and structural properties and stability of small mixed silver bromide clusters in gas phase and a Postdoctorate position at the University of Valladolid, Spain, on dynamics of fullerenes encapsulated inside a carbon nanotube. His work mainly focuses on the theoretical study of structural, electronic, and optical properties of complexes, clusters, and nanostructures. He is a Specialist of DFT and TDDFT calculations as well as ab initio quantum chemistry based on the wave function. He also develops empirical potentials to investigate specific systems or particular properties.
