We are a theoretical research group of chemists and physicists, working to find new ways to initiate, probe, and control chemical motion with light. We develop and apply advanced simulation protocols based on quantum molecular dynamics and quantum chemistry to simulate the fundamental dynamics of nuclei and electrons and their spectroscopic observables. Our target systems include DNA and RNA nucleobases, molecular switches, chiral molecules, organic chromophores for optoelectronics, and more. Our simulations aim to answer fundamental questions about the natural motions of molecules, how they can be probed and manipulated, and how they can potentially be exploited for next-generation technologies.
