Curriculum Vita

Our research centers on the development and application of theoretical and computational methods for describing chemical reactions in condensed phases and at interfaces.

Research Interests


Our research centers on the development and application of theoretical and computational methods for describing chemical reactions in condensed phases and at interfaces. The group is divided into three general areas: proton-coupled electron transfer reactions, enzymatic processes, and non-Born-Oppenheimer electronic structure methods. Our overall objective is to elucidate the fundamental physical principles underlying charge transfer reactions. Our theories also assist in the interpretation of experimental data and provide experimentally testable predictions.
