Our research directions focus on quantum, classical, and mixed quantum-classical techniques to describe non-equilibrium evolution in high-dimensional molecular systems.

Among our areas of special interest are ultrafast excited-state processes where coherent quantum evolution is accompanied by the environment's non-equilibrium dynamics. Our recent work in this context includes the photophysics of functional organic polymer materials:

Further, we collaborate with experiment to develop tools for the photocontrol of biological assemblies, including two-photon excitation and removal of photolabile protecting groups (PPGs):

Method development focuses on

We are members of the Research Training Group "Complex Scenarios of Light Control" (CLiC) dedicated to the study and design of tailored photocontrol of biological systems.
