Research Interests

Quantum Yields

The quantum yield of a compound determines the likelihood of light being absorbed or emitted. For certain processes, a higher or lower quantum yield is desirable. By using electronic structure theory, we can examine the energetics of the process and predict quantum yields. I'm looking to apply this for organic semiconductors.

CDFT-CI Gradients

Our group has previously implemented gradients for CDFT-CI, however they were very computationally expensive. I'm trying to make them faster.
