We use computers to study multiscale phenomena and connect measurements taken on disparate length and timescales. Multiscale models provide a unique opportunity to investigate the emergent design principles of hierarchical materials. 



We develop new algorithms to study multiscale phenomena in artificial and biological materials. 

Our team members collaborate to write software that is scalable and maintainable. 


We study quantum dynamics of molecular aggregates for light harvesting and photocatalysis. We also explore the multiscale structure-function relationships of bioenergetics in photosynthesis and respiration. 


We are diligent, collegial, and creative scientists who value working in a diverse team. We believe that creativity arises from intellectual independence, broad knowledge of the field, and a supportive environment.
