Research Interest:

I am interested in developing and applying theoretical methods to simulate chemical dynamics. The dynamical interplay of entangled protons and electrons lies particularly close to my heart. Specifically, I am interested in:

1) Proton tunneling: Developing methods that can incorporate nuclear tunneling on the fly in simulations, and the application of such methods to proton tunneling through thin membranes.
2) Catalysis: Developing methods that can include the effects of metallic electrons on chemical reactions with the goal to simulate catalytic reactions.
