Molecular properties

We target on the development of machine learning (ML) approaches for molecular properties (energy, force, etc). Molecular dynamic trajectory-based ML force field is introduced to accelerate ab initio molecular dynamics (AIMD) simulation. Energy density-based descriptors are constructed to predict correlation energy at post-Hartree–Fock level. Among these works, feature engineering is of special interest with the hidden information of chemical systems encoded, so we do not treat everything inside a “black-box”.

Dynamic properties

We develop ML algorithms for biasing enhanced sampling methods, e.g., metadynamics. Our current interest focuses on the development of collective variables for complicated chemical system using the deep learning (DL) technique. To improve the learning ability of the DL model, we also work on the development of new structural representations that can be used for arbitrary chemical systems. In addition, an in-house software suite has been developed and used in real world chemistry problems in collaboration with experimentalists.
