Research Interests

My research interests lie in:- the development and application of new theoretical methods and algorithms for modelling quantum properties of molecules and materials, such as molecular structure, dynamics, photochemistry, redox potentials, and reactivity. - the application of quantum chemical methods to design new molecules and materials for renewable energy capture and storage.
