We investigate how atoms are connected in molecules and how they interact.

Our research is interested in the fundamental properties of molecules and materials. We investigate how atoms are connected in molecules, how molecules interact with each other, other molecules or stimuli (electron, X-ray, visible light, sound waves, thermal agitation), and how chemical reactions happen.

Research keywords: chemical bonding, structures, self-assembly, interaction with surfaces/electron/light, reaction mechanism, computational modelling
