Welcome to my personal webpage!

I am Arifin and I currently work as an assistant research fellow of Quantum Chemistry group in Institute of Transformative Bio-molecules, Nagoya University, Japan. I am doing research in the field of theoretical chemistry, focusing on material sciences, catalysts, and chemical reactions. Below is one of my publications, which shows how does the molecular theories could help to understand the chemical process that you do in the laboratories. Let’s enjoy the excitement of computational chemistry!
