Our group works at the interface of theoretical chemistry, biology, physics, and applied mathematics.

Method Development

FrontPage_ToolsComputer.jpeg

We develop new theoretical and computational methods to study multiscale phenomena in artificial and biological materials. Our team members collaborate to write software that is scalable and maintainable, using a broad range of open-source tools.

Science

FrontPage_ScienceSummary.jpeg

We study mesoscale quantum dynamics in molecular materials. We explore multiscale structure-function relationships of bioenergetics in photosynthesis and respiration. We don't let traditional disciplinary boundaries stop us.

We are diligent, collegial, and creative scientists who value working in a diverse team. Some of the words we use to describe our aspirations for the group:

  • Unbounded

  • Ambitious

  • Collaborative

Featured Article

In this article we develop an adaptive approach to solving the hierarchy of pure states (HOPS) equations which provides a formally exact, size-invariant scaling algorithm for simulating exciton dynamics in molecular aggregates containing thousands of pigments.
 
As part of this project, we also released our first open-source code base for adaptive HOPS (adHOPS) calculations. Check it out!
