Research

research overview

  • We are generally interested in controlling photochemical and photophysical transformations using shaped laser fields and by manipulation of molecular structures we synthesize. Our research cuts broadly across traditional disciplines of physical and physical inorganic chemistry. We use and develop tools of coherent control, synthesis, time-resolved spectroscopy (fs - ms), 2D-electronic spectroscopy (exploiting pulse shapers), static electronic spectroscopies, electrochemistry, electronic structure theory, and statistical methodologies for analysis of adaptive femtosecond pulse shaping results. We are driven by the dire ramifications of anthropogenic climate change, recognize the need for solar energy conversion on a massive scale, and are developing tools and molecular systems to understand and control photochemical transformations.
