Areas of Research and Expertise

My research concerns the development and application of
methods to determine and analyze the quantum dynamics
of chemical reactions, as well as the development and application
of methods to study nanophotonics problems. The quantum
dynamics applications often involve the chemical reactions that
play important roles in combustion and atmospheric chemistry.
The nanophotonics work includes time-domain simulations of
light interacting with metallic nanostructures.
