Welcome to the website of our research group! As of July 2015, we are a new research group at the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at UC San Diego. We are theorists who are interested in a variety of topics involving interaction of molecular systems with light in various forms. Topics range broadly from optical spectroscopy to polaritonics and topological phases. Our research lies at the interface between chemical physics, materials science, and condensed matter theory.
