My general research interests are in the areas of theoretical (computational) condensed matter, atomic and molecular, and cluster physics. In particular I am interested in the study of electronic correlation in manyelectron systems, the study of vibrations and rotations of molecules and the understanding of the electronic and magnetic properties of small systems such as nanoclusters. These investigations are done using abinitio density functional theory and quantum Monte Carlo methods.

Peer Enhanced Experiential Research in STEM (PEERS)A proposal to the National Science Foundation by Professors Acioli (Physics), Head (Earth Science), Nicholson (Chemistry), Filus (Mathematics), and Sztainberg (Computer Science) to advance the research skills of undergraduate majors in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) at NEIU has been funded. This will be accomplished through the inclusion of handson research activities, expansion of computer simulations, and most importantly, through the use of peer mentors to facilitate these activities, in the introductory 200level courses in Chemistry, Earth Science, Physics, Mathematics, and Computer Science.
