Research Interests

Photoinduced charge and energy transfer in systems ranging from small molecules to extended systems are challenging to model and simulate, but offer a unique view into fundamental processes underlying much of chemistry, biology, materials science, and nanotechnology. We use density functional theory to simulate electronic dynamics and to parameterize simple models for studying phenomena such as singlet fission, plasmonic enhancement of nonlinear optical spectroscopic signals, and molecular plasmon dynamics. Real-time time-dependent density functional theory (RT-TDDFT) is a powerful nonperturbative method for simulating nonadiabatic electronic dynamics, and is our tool of choice for many investigations. We are interested in extending the applicability of RT-TDDFT to larger and larger systems while increasing computational speed.
