Dr Gruning's main research interests are in the development and application of first-principles approaches to the electronic and optical properties of materials.
She is one of the core developers of the Yambo and is collaborating in the development of Questaal, which both are codes for many-body calculations in solid state.
Regarding the applications of the theory and codes, she is currently working on the nonlinear optical properties of nanostructures and on the engineering of the band offset in heterojunctions.
