Computational Chemical Physics

We are developing and applying quantum and classical molecular simulation methods to study:

  • Non-adiabatic dynamics of charge transport and exciton dissociation
  • Electron transfer and electronic conduction in proteins
  • Redox processes at solid/liquid interfaces
  • Transport and binding of small ligands in proteins
