Current Research Interests
Our research interests are in the area of theoretical and computational chemistry. Understanding the properties and the changes of materials at the molecular level is the essence of chemistry. The main focus of our research is to study dynamical processes involved in the chemical changes leading to specific functions of molecular systems. The purpose of the research is, first, to develop theories, mathematical frameworks and computational methods for describing quantum dynamics of complex molecular systems. The second area of research concerns with the applications of computer simulations to characteristics of nano-materials, chemical reactions in condensed matter, self-assembly at surfaces/interfaces, functional mechanism of biological molecules, and understanding of protein folding and aggregation.
